Branch people

Our branch represents members employed at Liverpool John Moores university in Academic and Research roles. This includes staff working on fractional, fixed-term and sessional contracts; the latter some of the most vulnerable staff in our sector. We also represent post-graduate students who are studying towards a career in higher education.

We are always actively recruiting. If you’re interested in joining the union, please contact your local rep to find out more about the UCU and for an application form. If you’re a post-graduate (e.g. PGCE, PhD) studying towards a career in higher education, you may be eligible for free student membership.

School and site reps

We have local representatives in as many schools/sites as possible across the university. They are often the first point of contact for members to discuss their issues; we will never turn a member away!

Ideally, we’d like to have reps in every school in the LJMU to serve our members. If your school only has 1 or 2 reps – or none at all – would you consider volunteering? It strengthens your union, helps your colleagues and although hard work at times, it can be very rewarding. Please get in touch with one of our branch officials or a nearby rep if you’d like to discuss this!

If you’d like to help the union but don’t want to become a rep, then there are plenty of other ways you can help the branch and your fellow members. For example, you can help to recruit new members, distribute information and keep bulletin boards up to date. Please have a chat with your local rep – you will always be welcomed!

However, if you’ve come here because you want to find a rep in your school or on your LJMU site, then you can find a directory of our current reps by clicking here .
