UCU Reps train at Taunton

UCU reps discuss the DOs and DONTs of individual casework

Being a UCU rep is both challenging and rewarding so UCU supports each and every rep by providing free and extensive training. Reps can learn about Health and Safety, organising, individual casework, collective issues, employment legislation and collective bargaining and meet others that are doing the same job.

Here four reps from the South West Region break out to discuss the DOs and DONTs of individual casework.  They are part of the latest batch of twelve reps to train on the popular Reps 2 Training Course, a three day course held twice yearly in Taunton (March 2013). 

The University and College Union (UCU) represents more than 120,000 academics, lecturers, trainers, instructors, researchers, managers, administrators, computer staff, librarians and postgraduates in universities, colleges, prisons, adult education and training organisations across the UK and is the largest post-school union in the world. It has thousands of union reps, all doing rewarding work supporting their colleagues and standing up for education.
