UCU is the voice for academic-related staff.
Through our national and local initiatives, and through the academic-related manifesto, we are focusing on the key role that academic-related staff play both as part of the academic team in higher education and as members of the union.
We aim to ensure that:
- the contribution of academic-related staff to higher education is acknowledged through higher pay, better opportunities for personal and career development, improved working conditions, and an appropriate work-life balance
- the Framework Agreement is implemented fairly across the academic team in respect of new pay, grading, role analysis and job evaluation arrangements
- higher education institutions properly value and recognise the contribution and expertise of academic-related staff, particularly in the composition of their governing bodies.
UCU is strengthened by the increased involvement of academic-related members at all levels of the union.
