Birkbeck UCU | Get Involved!

Document Actions

Get Involved!

UCU Committee and Representatives are active members of the union who volunteer their time because they believe union work is important - to the benefit of Birkbeck as an institution, its staff and students, and to the health of society generally.

The union will only be as good as you help to make it, so we invite you to get involved!

There are several ways you can get involved:

  • Get involved in specific campaigns that mean something to you. Contact with ideas or offer to your help.
  • Become a point of contact for union members in your department. Contact to find out more and click here to download the UCU Rep Handbook
  • Help to grow the membership by asking your colleagues to join.
  • Distribute union information to other members in your department.
  • Feed information on local issues to your branch. Contact if there are any issues you or other members have identified.
  • Join the Committee. You don't need to be a committee member to be a departmental contact or to help other members, but your participation in the Committee will help strengthen UCU's work and broaden our representation. If you would like to 'sit in' on the next Committee meeting then please contact

If you'd like to get more involved then come to the next UCU Branch Committee or contact us directly
