Local Branch Hardship Fund

The University and Colleges Union has a national hardship fund to support those who took strike action in the recent pay and pensions dispute which can be accesssed here.  UCU members can claim from this fund for day 2 onwards of the strike action from if they earn less than £30k/annum, or day 3 if they earn over £30k/annum.

Within HW UCU we are raising funds for a local hardship fund to support members. We anticipate prioritising those on precarious contracts, early career colleagues and those on lower incomes (e.g. part time colleagues). Please consider donating to the hardship fund using our bank details:

The Bank: Unity Trust Bank
Account name: UCU – Heriot-Watt University LA 023 Hardship Fund

Details of how to claim from the HWUCU hardship fund will be made available in the New Year.
