Sexual Violence at Work

UCU is fully committed to eradicating sexual violence and harassment. At the Branch level, we are committed to helping any member affected by sexual violence.

We have created a new section on this website, with practical information as well as a list of resources. Please click on by clicking on "equality" and then "Sexual Violence at Work".

Please also note that your Branch has now appointed three officers to be your point of contact, should you need to talk and /or disclose an act of sexual violence. They are:
