This list includes UCU department reps (your first contact about local workplace issues), anti-casualisation reps, postgraduate reps, workload health and safety reps and general health and safety reps, and members of the UCU committee.

If there is no department rep, anticasualisation rep, postgraduate rep or workload / health and safety rep where you work, please discuss with colleagues who would be good to fill the vacancy. Then get in touch via ucu@leeds.ac.uk and we’ll explain the nomination and election process.

In areas where we don’t have a member willing to be a department rep we’d welcome volunteers to be points of contact, which is an easy role involving looking after the local UCU noticeboard, distributing leaflets, and being the named contact to signpost members to union support. To volunteer for this please email ucu@leeds.ac.uk.

If there isn’t a UCU department rep for your immediate workplace, please contact one of the other reps in the faculty. Caseworkers aren’t listed here – for any casework issues, please email ucu@leeds.ac.uk or phone 35904.
