UCU Sussex runs a range of campaigns which respond to critical issues affecting the university. It recently ran the Crisis Justice Sussex Campaign, which sought a more just and public health oriented response to the pandemic from the University of Sussex. 

As a branch committed to cross-union solidarity, we also campaign on behalf of other campus unions and local and international trade unions to support their struggles for proper and decent working conditions. A recent example of this was with last year’s successful effort to prevent mass redundancies among Chartwells catering staff at the University just before Christmas 2020, and which involved UCU providing support for a Unite-led campaign.

We are currently working with sibling campus unions on Take Back Sussex: a campaign to fighting redundancy, precarity, and profiteering and our university and more broadly in higher education. People before profit. Education first. In these times, & always!Find out more, get involved in meetings and join the mailing list here

We are always open to new campaign ideas and for members to get involved - please contact us at with any thoughts.
