|Sheffield University and College Union|
The University and College Union (UCU) represents more than 120,000 academics, lecturers, trainers, instructors, researchers, managers, administrators, computer staff, librarians and postgraduates in universities, colleges, prisons, adult education and training organisations across the UK.
UCU is the largest post-school union in the world: a force working for educators and education that employers and the government cannot ignore. It was formed on 1 June 2006 by the amalgamation of two strong partners - the Association of University Teachers (AUT) and NATFHE-the University & College Lecturers' Union - who shared a long history of defending and advancing educators' employment and professional interests.
SUCU is the University of Sheffield local association of the UCU and is the only body recognised by the University to represent, and negotiate on behalf of academic, academic-related and research staff. The SUCU Committee consists of volunteer members of staff whose work (on the membership's behalf) includes personal case work, organising general meetings, negotiating terms and conditions with the University, liaison with other Campus Unions, national campaigning and providing information on issues relevant to trades unions.
