UNISON - University of Nottingham Branch

Welcome to UNISON

Annual General Meeting (AGM) - Thursday 2 March 2023

The date of the branch Annual General Meeting will be Thursday 2 March 2023, 10am-12 noon, University Park (room tbc), and also online at 4.15-5.45pm.

The morning session will be a hybrid meeting with attendance possible online and in person; refreshments and lunch will be provided.

This year we also plan to run an extra online session of the AGM for members who will struggle to make the morning session. This will be at 4.15-5.45pm. This will follow the same agenda as the morning meeting and any votes taken will be added to any votes taken in the morning.

A number of posts will be appointed at the AGM including branch officers and workplace representatives. If you would be interested in taking up any of these roles, we attach a summary of them, also a nomination form to fill in.

Please phone or email the branch secretary or email the branch unison@nottingham.ac.uk if you would like to know more about this, either what the posts involve or the election process.

HR has approved this meeting so reasonable time off with pay to attend the AGM should be allowed to all members. If you anticipate any problems with your manager giving you time off, please let us know asap.


At University of Nottingham we negotiate pay directly (locally) with the employer. Our members rejected their 2022-25 pay offer in a ballot but the University has imposed it. We will still try to improve pay in the next 3 years and have asked our regional office for permission to organise an industrial action ballot. Keep an eye out for updates.

Solidarity with the UCU branch!

The UNISON branch supports the UCU in their dispute over pay, pensions and employment conditions. 

We ask UNISON members not to cover any work that might be done by a UCU member on strike days. If you have any questions, please email unison@nottingham.ac.uk
