Branch members

Branch members

The branch operates through members volunteering. Whether that's through leading the branch on Committee, helping out with casework, getting involved in our campaigns or becoming a department rep - there's something for everyone and we provide free education and support along the way.

In partnership with our sister campus trade unions, we are recognised to negotiate and consult staff terms and conditions with University of Aberdeen management. We are a democratic and member-led union where members are encouraged to actively get involved in the branch.

We don't just provide advice and representation - a union is all about coming together to support each other and to demand change for the better for our working conditions and our students' learning conditions.
