Dear colleague

As you may already be aware, (from the email below that was circulated recently), the general secretary, Sally Hunt, will be absent from work over the coming period. Over the last few days I have had numerous communications from members asking about the leadership of the union during her absence.

I would like to assure you that the union will continue to function as normal and in accordance with the contract of the national head of democratic services, I can clarify that Paul Cottrell will assume the role of deputising during this time.

In unity

Dear colleague

For some years now I have managed multiple sclerosis (MS). It has never stopped me from doing my job properly on behalf of members.

However the last year has been very high pressured as you can imagine. I wanted you to know that on doctors’ orders I have been told to rest for a short period of up to three months or risk further worsening my condition.

I love UCU and I love my job but this is advice I simply have to take for reasons I hope you understand.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sally Hunt
UCU general secretary
