UCU is the University and College Union. It is a national union representing over 120,000 academics, lecturers, trainers, instructors, researchers, managers, administrators, computer staff, librarians, technicians, professional staff and postgraduates in universities, colleges, prisons, adult education and training organisations across the UK.

Most universities will have their own branch that represents the members at that university. Last year when UCU undertook a national ballot on whether to undertake industrial action UCU members at SOAS voted to undertake this action.
UCU members at SOAS are striking over pay and working conditions and the USS pension dispute.
