UCU UoN Meeting on HE Pay and Casualisation


Wednesday 16th September, 2 – 3pm, Clive Granger, A40

We would like to invite members to our next meeting, at which we’ll be canvassing views on how UCU should take forward the pay campaign in the light of members’ rejection of the employers’ offer. We’d also like your input into our campaigns over the next year. Many of our members and potential members are affected, like other workers on campus, by increasing casualisation and we would like your views on how we might address this. Casualised contracts leave our colleagues financially insecure, and uncertain of their future in the sector. Staff on insecure and short term contracts are a priority for UCU. You can find out more about UCU’s ‘Stamp Out Casual Contracts’ campaigns here.

We’d also like to invite you to an event that same evening, co-sponsored by UoN UCU, and co-hosted by the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation and the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice:
