Would you be willing to volunteer as a caseworker?

Caseworkers are essential to the services that UCU Stirling Branch can offer to members and they are always here to help. They can give you advice on employment rights and conditions, plus

• Support with disciplinary procedures, including allegations of under-performance
• Support with dispute resolution and grievance procedures
• Representation at tribunals
• Discrimination and harassment issues
• Stress management
• Advice on health and safety issues

All our caseworkers undergo compulsory training days. Each caseworker will speak to you in total confidence and help you to resolve any issues that may be causing you stress and problems at work.

However, we are always seeking to recruit more caseworkers as our current volunteers each have a substantial portfolio.

Could you spend one hour a week assisting staff members whose health is suffering from problems and stresses at work? Could you help them to resolve their problems with tact, understanding and total confidentiality?

Recent issues have included:

• Workload concerns
• Probation and issues of under-performance
• Anxiety over financial constraints and likely job losses
• Contractual disputes
• Stress at work
• Health and safety issues

If you would like to volunteer to help as a caseworker or if you would like to speak to a caseworker, please contact Pam McGibbon (pamela.mcgibbon@stir.ac.uk) in the first instance and she will refer you to the Casework Co-ordinator.
