Recruitment Drive for UCU Members

We have launched a recruitment drive to attract new members to UCU at Queen’s. Whilst we have a substantial number of members in UCU at Queen’s, we feel that many staff are unsure about what support UCU offers and have not considered joining. The officers involved have worked hard in their own personal time to organise this effort. Over the next few weeks individual hardcopy letters to all staff who are not members of UCU are being sent along with a membership pack and form. These will be followed up by personal contacts in each area. If you know of any colleagues who are not members of UCU, please encourage them to join. They will receive their letters in the very near future.

You can find UCU advice on pay docking on the National UCU site at

http://fairpay.web.ucu.org.uk/guidance-on-pay-docking/

If necessary further on advice on local legal issues regarding pay docking will be given.

UCU are urging all those that took part in the two hour strikes to write to their management to complain.

A suggested form of wording has been provided by HQ for this purpose.
