UCU VP and NEC elections 2020

Elections for the UCU Vice President (VP), National Executive Committee (NEC) and trustees will take place beginning 31st January and closing on 4th March. As many members do not take part in these elections, it’s important to encourage as many as possible to use their vote in order to strengthen the tradition of a strong member-led union.


Jo McNeill (Chair, Liverpool Uni UCU), Mark Abel (Chair Brighton UCU Coordinating Committee), Peter Evans (South Thames College Equality Rep) and Carlo Morelli (President UCU Scotland) on why they support Margot Hill for VP.

To ensure we have a VP and NEC committed to fighting for decent pay and conditions, vote for the UCU Left supported candidates listed below.

The VP this year is selected from the Further Education sector. However, ALL members (including members in HE and retired members) can vote for Margot Hill. Margot has led a series of successful disputes at Croydon College, particularly over casualisation, and has an excellent record as a union activist.
