Meat Free Mondays

Meat Free Mondays

Meat Free Mondays is a campaign that encourages everyone to go meat free for one day a week. The impact this has on our individual carbon footprints is significant. 

Demand UCL safeguards workers' rights at its Qatar campus!

After FIFA’s decision to give Qatar the honour of hosting the 2022 World Cup, the spotlight has shone on the country, especially on the human rights and workers’ rights situation there.

Qatar is becoming more and more renowned for its flagrant disregard for workers’ rights and human rights.

Fair Play for UCL Teaching Assistants!

Fair Play For TAs is a UCL-wide campaign to fight for fairer conditions for postgraduate teaching assistants (PGTAs), supported by the UCLU Postgraduate Association.

Our Campaign

Postgraduate teaching assistants at UCL are exploited, underpaid, and overworked. But now we’re fighting back - and winning already. Join us to defend and extend your rights!

Fossil Free UCL

Fossil Free UCL is a campaign to break UCL’s ties to the fossil fuel industry. This includes investments by UCL, research funding by fossil fuel companies and advertising and sponsorship deals. See our petition for our full demands and see the Fossil Free UCL website for more information.

UCLU Supporting the Hands Off London Transport Campaign

  • Support the campaign fighting £9.8billion cuts to the London Underground
  • Fight the proposals to axe 1000 vital, frontline staff, there to support and provide assistance to passengers
  • Solidarity with London Underground workers on strike – don’t cross the picket lines!

In November 2013, London Underground bosses and the Mayor’s Office announced a cuts plan that would see 953 frontline station jobs and a radical staff restructuring that could see workers lose thousands of pounds of pay.

Fair pay for our staff!

Staff at UCL and universities across the country have been campaigning for fair pay, and UCLU is supporting them. This page will be kept up to date with the latest news and information. (N.B. the FAQ has now been removed from this page due to the cancellation of the marking boycott, but you can find links to various posts and material from the campaign at the bottom of this page.)

Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment

**Content note: discussion of sexual harassment, mentions of assault and rape.

Sexual harassment and sexual violence are serious problems across the country. The Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment campaign represents UCLU’s attempt to tackle these problems at a grassroots level. We believe that we all have a duty to challenge harassment and violence when we see them; when we are silent about these issues, we become complicit in them.

What is sexual harassment?
