If you have any questions about what these roles entail, or are interested in standing for a position that is not listed, please contact us. It is important we have a strong and diverse committee. N.B. it is possible to share posts, and hold more than one.
What is it like being on the branch committee / being a Rep?
“Since I’ve joined the committee I’ve understood better how our union can work as a space for staff members to come together and share ideas and act on how we’d like to see our workplace progress. I’ve really enjoyed having the opportunity to do training with UCU and found the experience of supporting colleagues as a case worker really rewarding. It’s also been a real pleasure to get to know people outside of my school and work collectively with them. It’s a space where people really listen to each others views and I feel safe to share my own.”Lucy Parker, Joint Course Leader BA Filmmaking, KSA.
“I came to Kingston as a HPL before getting a permanent post. Getting involved with the union has been the main way I’ve gotten to know anything about how Kingston functions outside my own department and faculty. It’s been one of the only spaces in which I’ve felt I can actually have a voice about decisions that impact my work, and realised that I’m not alone in struggling with unreasonable workloads, feeling unsupported, and a lack of transparency. It’s empowering to know that others care about the same issues and want to see action taken. Getting involved in the committee this year has helped me see both the scale of the issues different staff face and to feel like I can make a difference in confronting them collectively.”Maggie Gray, CHS, KSA.
