Getting Involved

Cardiff UCU—Your Union

What would you like to do?

Organising the Workplace

  • Help project a visible recruitment presence in targeted areas, including problem hot spots.
  • Map potential membership across the University and work out areas where recruitment should be a priority.
  • Inform members of local issues by updating branch web pages or the Facebook page, or by helping to prepare  draft news items.
  • Prepare and analyse member surveys.


Join the Cardiff UCU Casework team, get trained, and enjoy the satisfaction of helping colleagues resolve problems they have at work.

Branch Committee
