Targetting the right people for the right job!

11 April 2015

We have found that our newer members are more receptive to requests to sign up as UCU contacts and they provide an enthusiastic poster-sticking service. We aim to refresh the posters on campus every few weeks to keep the displays fresh and relevant. We hope this low-level introduction to trade union activity will lead to greater engagement in future.

Members who have had the benefit of personal case support themselves have proved to be our best source of volunteers to undergo reps/casework training. With the number of members needing support always on the increase, it is great to have a larger pool of trained reps on hand to offer understanding, support and advice to members in need.
