Taking action in higher education

Academic-related professional staff annual meeting

The term 'academic-related staff' covers a wide range of roles in higher education; information services, computing, support and administration in grades represented by UCU.

The annual meeting is a vital part of our democracy: it elects an academic-related, professional staff committee to advise the the national executive committee. It also sends motions to the union's annual congress meeting to inform its work for the year, and it's an opportunity to discuss how to step up the fight in all our branches.

The latest meeting was held on 12 March 2020.

Expenses

UCU members are entitled to claim expenses (including caring expenses) for attending the conference. Expense claim forms will be available on the day of each conference. UCU expect members not to incur any more expense than necessary.

Reasonable travel and subsistence expenses will be paid to cover costs necessarily incurred in attending the conference.
