On a fixed-term, hourly paid or zero hours contract?

stampout_logo_225x155UCU is holding a day of action against casualization in universities and colleges on Wednesday 5th of November.

At Nottingham, UCU is organising a café morning at Aspire Café to bring an opportunity to staff on fix-term contract, hourly paid contracts and zero-hour contracts to share experiences and tips for surviving casualisation.

Research staff and graduate teaching  assistants make a huge  contribution to  education but are often undervalued and employed  on short-term  contracts. With all political parties wanting to be seen to act on zero hours contracts and employers vulnerable to reputation damage, now is a great time to highlight the casualisation of our sector and push forward the argument that high quality education depends on secure contracts and continuity of employment.

 When: 5th of November from 10 till 11am

Where: Trent Café (University Park) and  Aspire Café (Triumph Rd, opposite Geospatial building at Jubilee Campus)

UCU will be paying for the coffee and cakes!
