Problems at work - can we help you?
Changes in funding, changes in senior personnel, even student allegations - all these can threaten a job, and result in a need for help. UCU members qualify to receive expert advice from professional staff with a wealth of experience and, should the need arise, specialist legal advice and representation.
Contacting LUCU about your case
If you are having problems at work and would like LUCU advice, contact your departmental contact or Seb O'Halloran, personal cases coordinator. They will either be able to offer some advice or be able to point you in the direction of someone else who will be able to help you.
