UCU National Congress 2013: UCU’s annual congress will be held in Brighton this year, between 29-31 May. Congress is our sovereign democratic body and it’s here that our policies for the coming year are agreed. Our democracy is important to us, but we know that it can be difficult to find time to read all the documents we produce or to know what the big issues are. That’s why the National Executive Committee (NEC) has produced a special Congress bulletin, identifying those motions that they consider to be dealing with critical issues for the union. Please have a look at this bulletin. The NEC is advising all our branches and local associations to hold meetings to consult members about these key issues, so please try to attend these if possible. UCU is your union. The more members who participate in our democratic life, the stronger we will be. You can read the bulletin here: Key Issues Bulletin

Beware of Pension Scams: Recently, there has been an increase in pension scams where people are being contacted by text or telephone advising/asking if they want to ‘release’ some of their pension. There have been a couple of potential cases involving members of the Cambridge Colleges Federated Pension Scheme over recent weeks and as a result, we are keen to highlight this to University employees and our members.
