College/Department Reps: TO BE CONFIRMED
In its previous iteration, the Committee had seven further ordinary members acting as Reps for the five Colleges, the Business School and INTO. This will have to change due to the ongoing university restructure but no formal decision has yet been made by the branch. At this time the Committee would just like to encourage as many members as possible to express interest in getting involved in helping build links between the branch and members (and non-members) in different departments/colleges – as well as representing members’ interests there. The Committee can then hold further discussions about the best way of organising union representation across the university as we head into the new academic year of 2022/23.
Please contact the branch President Alex Prichard ( or the branch Secretary Brian Rappert ( for further information.

Previous Committees: 2020-21, 2019-20.
