Welcome to the UCT Employees Union (UCTEU) website.

The UCT Employees Union (UCTEU) is the largest staff representative body at the University of Cape. It is a duly registered Trade Union in terms of  Section 96 (1) Labour Relations Amendment Act, No 12 of 2002 of the Republic of South Africa. It is the recognised bargaining unit for Pay Classes 6 to 12. However, the UCTEU also represents members from Pay Classes 1  to 13 - as well as academics -  in work-related matters.

To this end we participate in many forums and perform a large number of activities.
