Joint union meeting on casualisation and the need for a Living Wage on campus
Wednesday 14 October at 1pm in LASS B62
Casualised employment is an increasing problem on our campus. More and more of our colleagues are employed through Unitemps on inferior contracts, often having to move from one casual contract to another without enjoying the benefits related to job security.
There are people working on the Nottingham campus who earn less than the Living Wage, a rate calculated to allow for a minimum, basic standard of living. Other colleagues have to move from one casual contract to another without enjoying the benefits related to job security. After successful joint campaigns, 17 universities have become Living Wage employers, joining big names like Ikea in recognising the benefits of decent pay.We would like to hear your experiences and views on these issues to help develop a Living Wage and anti-casualisation campaign.
The three main campus unions are working together on these issues, together with Nottingham Citizens, and student group representatives. We invite you to our joint meeting on Wednesday 14th October at 1pm in LASS B62, and hope to see you there.
