Getting help and advice on work problems

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 ucu-coordinator@qmul.ac.uk who will then allocate your case to one of the UCU committee members who has been accredited for personal casework.

Free Support Services

Education Support Partnership (formerly Recourse) provides free support services specifically for all staff working in adult, further and higher education. Supported by UCU, ESP complements the work of the union offering information and advice, telephone counselling, online coaching and financial assistance.
