Welcome to the Cambridge University Local Association of the University and College Union!
The UCU is the largest trade union and professional association for academic and academic-related staff working in Further and Higher Education in the UK. Its membership is open to postdocs, and postgraduate students intending to work in the HE and FE sectors, as well as more senior academic staff. It is also open to academic-related staff at grade 6 and above.

One of the LA Exec, Mary Jennings, is running in the London Marathon in support of the Stroke (aka Brain Attack) Association. You can sponsor her.
USS Roadshows, 23rd April to 12th May 2015
USS-organised roadshows in Cambridge run from 23rd April to 12th May, and one can book here (each date has a different venue). There is no direct UCU input into these events, and we would not necessarily regard them as being wholly unbiased.
USS Formal Consultation Period, 16th March to 22nd May 2015
The proposed changes to the USS pensions scheme are subject to a statutory consultation invloving all members of the scheme, not just UCU members. There will be many presentations and other communications during this period.

Is something missing? We hope not, but this site has just been re-organised, and something may been overlooked as a result. If so, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know. The old site is still available.
