People

Newcastle University UCU’s work is carried out by members who volunteer to carry out dedicated roles:

  • Committee members are elected from all parts of the University, we have  academics, researchers and administrators on the committee.
  • School , Institute and Unit representatives and local contacts are a point of contact for local members and they who help to distribute UCU information. The whole University isn’t yet covered – could you put up some posters and leaflets? Please contact the local office – emails bellow.
  • Personal Caseworkers – members of the team are allocated to members with personal casework issues

UCU also employs Jane Blakeman and Chris Easton, administrators who support the members of the branch, the committee, and caseworkers.  Chris’s main role is membership and recruitment.
