UCU Elections

Ballots to elect UCU trustees, the general secretary, vice-president from the higher education sector,  honorary treasurer and NEC members (including the NEC casual vacancy, FE North East) opened on 1 February 2017. Please do use your vote – every vote is critical to how you want your union to run. You can read more on the UCU web site including what to do if you don’t receive a ballot paper https://www.ucu.org.uk/article/7228/UCU-elections-2017

Candidates standing for election are able to send campaign material around branches and the ones we have received are posted below with links to flyers and text sent to us.

Douglas Chalmers, standing for Vice President:

In these uncertain times of national and international upheaval we need a leadership that continues to focus on members’ core concerns of professionalism and pay & conditions. As Vice President I would see growing the union as priority. The leaflet attached outlines some key ideas for taking the union forward, together with details of candidates who have pledged to work in this manner.  I have also taken part in a video interview where these ideas  are explored more fully – at http://ucuagenda.com

Marion Hersh, standing for UK elected HE members of UCU National Executive Committee

I am attaching my election flyer, which sets out some of the ways in which I will fight to defend education and members’ interests, including in protecting jobs, pay, pensions, academic freedom, equality and EU and international staff and students and against casualisation, increasing workloads and marketisation.
