RUCU AGM 2017: Wednesday 31st May

Dear Members,

The Reading UCU Annual General Meeting 2017 will take place:

Date: Wednesday 31st May

Time: 13:00-14:00

Location: HUMSS Van Emden.

Please make every effort to attend, especially as RUCU is celebrating its 70th year – a Union Branch was established here at Reading in 1947!

An agenda will be sent out nearer the time. If you want to raise anything under AOB, please let me know by Thursday 12th May and this can be included on the agenda. Please also get in touch if you would like a Nomination Form for Committee members and officers.  All positions are up for re-election every year and we would like to encourage you to think about joining the Committee and/or standing for one of the officer posts. We would particularly hoping that members who are working or have worked on a casual contract – zero hours, hourly-paid, part-time or fixed term – will be willing to bring that perspective to the Committee’s work, as this is currently an important area of focus for RUCU.

If you would like more information, there is a description of the responsibilities of the roles currently in the Local rules section of our website at in Appendix 5, or have a chat with one of the existing Committee members (names and contact details also on the website). You could also come along to one of our regular Drop In sessions (Thursdays, 13:00 – 14:00) where Committee members will be happy to talk to you about how you can help the Branch, whether as a Committee member or in some other way.

Anyone being nominated needs to give their written consent by completing the Nomination Form, which must also be signed by two RUCU members. Nominees and proposers must all be Branch members paying appropriate subs.

Please return the Nomination forms to me by 5.00pm on Thursday 4th May (Room 105, JJ Thomson Building, Whiteknights).

Thank you


Colette Maxfield

RUCU Branch Administrator /
