UCU Rising – Ballot October 2023

UCU is also once again balloting of members to renew our industrial action mandate in the pay and working conditions dispute. Balloting institutions can be found here.

If you have returned your ballot it is vital to tell UCU you have done so, so campaign efforts can be directed towards those who haven’t. The easiest way to tell the union you have voted is by using this form.
