The branch are currently updating the local website and hope to have the new version up and running by the end of September 2017. The new site will include local and national news from UCU, communications from the Executive Committee and a place for members to put their comments, studies and ideas on to the site.
Victoria Cattini has been appointed as the new UCU Branch Administrator at York and will be working 12 hours a week (working days will usually be Monday and Friday). Victoria can be contacted by email at email@example.com.
19 November 2016: United for education
We have joined up with our sister union the National Union of Students (NUS) for a mass demonstration in defence of free, accessible and quality further and higher education and to demand an end to privatisation and cuts in universities and colleges. Staff, students and supporters from across the education sector and trade union movement will march in London in what promises to be a huge show of opposition to government policy on post-school education.
Help us make the national demo on 19 November the biggest ever!
