The branch are currently balloting on industrial action but need your help with their campaign against job cuts.
Please follow the link below and sign the petition calling on the university to rule out the use of compulsory redundancies.

To date our blog has largely been about providing information. However it can and should also be a place for debate. To that end we are going to start including occasional opinion pieces.
Make Your Voice Heard
UCU Edinburgh is here to represent our members and it’s crucial that different voices are heard, not just those in and around the committee. We are not just one homogeneous unit called UCU Edinburgh but a wide and varied collection of people!
Any UCU Edinburgh member is welcome to contribute and we may also try and get some guest contributions from further afield. Opinion pieces will be clearly labelled as such.
Anyone wishing to contribute an article should contact Grant Buttars – Grant.Buttars@ed.ac.uk
