Employee Voice

Find out here how you can be supported at work by a Trades Union, Staff Forum or a Diversity and Inclusion Staff Network.


Trades Union

The University of Reading has a formal recognition agreement in place with one Trade Union, the Universities and Colleges Union (UCU).

UCU is recognised as the body representing academic and related and professional and managerial staff on matters of pay and conditions of service.

Staff Forum

Employee Representatives of the Staff Forum actively discuss and seek practical solutions to improving employees' working experience. As part of this, the Staff Forum brings forward questions, ideas or concerns to senior management.

Staff Forum also helps the University to inform and consult with employees grades 1-5 but is not a trade union.
