Note that for any work issues beyond informal enquiries you would normally be linked with a UCU caseworker from a different Department.

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!
