Getting help and advice on work problems
UCU can help only people who are members. If you are not a member you will need to join UCU before you request advice. If you need advice or help on difficulties that arise between you and QM management or other staff then you should send your membership number and a brief outline of the issue to the personal case co-ordinator at email@example.com who will then allocate your case to one of the UCU committee members who have been accredited for personal casework. Please note that we may take longer to respond at certain times of the year such as August and official holiday breaks. Don’t leave things to the last minute. The earlier you get in touch the better. More detail and information on other sources of support are available at https://qmucu.wordpress.com/casework/
