Following ongoing negotiations between BUCU and the University we have managed to reach an agreement to improve the amount of time allocated to union representatives. The University have now agreed to provide paid time off for half a day per week to all union representatives, in order that they can perform their union duties. This might include casework duties, department representative roles, or committee membership.
This will hopefully also mean that BUCU will be able to be yet more visible and active in campaigning on behalf of, and representing, members across the University.
We therefore encourage you to become more active for BUCU – and claim your half day per week! – Contact BUCU for more details.
