Ben has retired so we need a new equality officer – could it be you? Or one of your colleagues?
At the last annual general meeting we agreed Ben Plumpton and Megan Povey would jointly cover the UCU University of Leeds branch equality officer role from September to December, and that we would seek new nominations after Christmas. Ben has now retired (after years of amazing work for UCU members) so the committee is seeking nominations for a new equality officer.
You can find out more about the role of branch equality officer on the page standing for election to the branch committee and by contacting me or branch president Chloe Wallace.
The deadline for nominations is the close of Friday 21 January.
When making a nomination, or thinking of standing yourself, it’s useful to consider the importance that the committee represents the whole membership and no group is over-represented to the accidental exclusion of others, as happens some years (but not every year) with the over-representation of male and/or white union members.
