History

The Association of University Teachers was a trade union and professional association for academic and academic-related staff at universities in the United Kingdom. A local association or branch of the association was established at the Royal College of Science and Technology in 1954. In 1959 it took over the functions of the Royal College of Science and Technology Staff Association, an earlier professional association which had been established at the College in 1945. In 1964 the branch became known as the Strathclyde Association of University Teachers but was not formally reconstituted as such until 1972.

The Association pressed for greater participation of the staff in the running of the College, and, in 1961, made submissions to the Robbins Committee of Inquiry into Higher Education. In 1963, it petitioned the Privy Council on the future development of the College and University.

In 2006, following the amalgamation of the Association of University Teachers with the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education, the Strathclyde Association of University Teachers was renamed the Strathclyde University and College Union.
