Tackling problems at work

As personal caseworkers for the UCU branch, we are often told by members that they are reluctant to use the formal grievance procedure.

UCU officers have worked with Human Resources (HR) on a guide to the informal options staff have when there’s a problem at work.   This has now been added as a staff guide to the Dignity at Work policy. Please have a look at the specific staff guide.

We commend this document to members and suggest you consult it if you find yourself in difficulties. It also makes suggestions of what colleagues might like to do if you witness inappropriate behaviour that is not directed at you.

We hope members find it useful and would welcome any suggestions for improving it.
