Undeb Cenedlaethol Athrawon Cymru

UCAC is Wales’s own education union for teachers, head-teachers, lecturers and tutors – the only teachers' union that puts Wales, and members in Wales, first. UCAC provides support for its members in the Welsh language and all its publications are in the Welsh language only.

UCAC offers a full professional service to its members, combining tailor-made advice and support with a strong union voice in campaigns. 

We are passionate about supporting and protecting our members, and about working towards an education system that meets the needs of Wales and everyone who lives here.

Ioan Rhys Jones, UCAC’s General Secretary was amongst the speakers at the Wales TUC Protect the Right to Strike Rally in Cardiff on 1 February.  The rally was held in Cardiff in response to the steps which are being taken by the Government in Westminster to introduce anti-union legislation which would limit the rights of individuals to strike.  The prospective legislation would mean that employees could be forced to work, despite having voted in favour of striking in a democratic ballot.  Ioan said, “It is important that we protect workers’ freedom and safeguard their right to voice their opinion and to take action to protect their pay and working conditions.  UCAC is proud take a stand in order to protect its members rights.”
