What We Do

Local negotiations

Cardiff UCU undertake local negotiations on issues such as:

  • pay and grading
  • restructuring
  • redundancy

We also raise collective concerns at quarterly meetings with university senior management. You can read more about these meetings, and summaries of what we raise, here.

Our Negotiating Committee coordinator is Chris Graves – Graves@cardiff.ac.uk


Help and advice for problems arising at work is available to UCU members at any time – for further details see our casework page. Our casework lead is Paul Brennan – BrennanP@cardiff.ac.uk

Bullying and Sexual Harassment at work

UCU is committed to fight against all forms of bullying and harassment in work – for more information see our Bullying and Sexual Harassment at work page.

Disability and discrimination

Employers must make reasonable adjustments so that disabled staff are not substantially disadvantaged as a result of disability. Cardiff UCU can support members in getting the adjustments they need – see our Disability and Discrimination page for more information. Our disability officer is Michelle Aldridge-Waddon – AldridgeM@cardiff.ac.uk.

Working groups

Working Groups are for members who wish to organise and campaign around specific issues. To find out more about what working groups are active at the moment see our Active Working Groups page.
