Pay deductions appear on pay slips.
National strike pay
UCU will provide strike pay. You will need your pay slips to apply to the local and national funds (you may apply for both).
If you need financial assistance because of strike action, please do not be afraid to apply for it, whatever your career stage or contractual status. During previous strikes, the local hardship fund disbursed many thousands of pounds.
Local hardship fund
We also have a local hardship fund which you can apply to for funds beyond those covered by the central strike pay. Click on the link for more details.
Donating to the hardship fund
If you need financial assistance because of strike action, please do not be afraid to apply for it, whatever your career stage or contractual status.
But if you can afford to, please contribute to our local hardship fund: much of the money disbursed last time came from donations.
Details for payments to the hardship fund are:
Account name: UCU Durham LA17 Hardship Fund Sort code: 60-83-01 Account number: 20392222 Suggested reference for transfers: DUCU Hardship fund
If you pay cash (rather than make a bank transfer) please let our Treasurer, Thomas Renström (firstname.lastname@example.org), know so that he can ascertain the payment was meant for the hardship fund. Confidentiality over donations is guaranteed.
