UCU’s position is constantly being kept under review and we will notify members as soon as possible if there is any change. For the most up to date information, please visit the UCU Covid 19 Resources page.

UCU has prepared a series of template letters for members who wish to submit a request to continue working remotely. You can find them here.  Note: You will need your membership number to access this area of the UCU website.


Local voluntary subscription 

Expenditure was higher than usual last year, in the main because of the cost of hiring Dunbar Hall as our strike base.  In order to return the bank account to the level required to ensure the branch is sufficiently solvent to meet all financial obligations, members proposed introducing a voluntary local subscription.  If any member wishes to do so, they may set up an instruction with their bank to deposit money directly into the branch account – either a one payment or a regular small payment.  Members will retain control over the payments and may vary/cancel at any time. This is an entirely voluntary scheme.
