The JNCC, as part of the employee relations agreement and structure, aims to enhance effective communication throughout the University to achieve greater participation and involvement of all members of staff.
The latest minutes of the JNCC are available to University staff:
Constituency of members
The JNCC comprises University management representatives and representatives of the recognised trade unions.
The membership of the JNCC is based upon the representation for the trade unions, based upon a calculation of 2 representatives plus 1 representative for every 250 trade union members or part thereof for each trade union, and an equivalent number of University Management representatives.

The JNCC is a semi autonomous committee with the authority to discuss issues and make certain decisions (as outlined in the Employee Relations Agreement and Structure). There will, however, be occasions where the JNCC will need to refer to other committees for information and/or approval.
The JNCC has three specific Sub Committees which are constituted on an ad-hoc basis following referral from JNCC Committee on issues specific to the individual Trade Unions:
- Sub-JNCC UCU
- Sub-JNCC Unison
- Sub-JNCC Unite
The JNCC also has Special Interest Groups relating to specific ongoing issues:
- Car Park Working Group
- Policy Development Group
The JNCC has occasional Joint Temporary Working Groups formed for a finite period to discuss specific stand alone issues.
Calendar of meetings
JNCC meeting dates are in the University Calendar of Meetings.
