Your UCU branch is campaigning to improve the conditions of staff on casualised contracts who teach or research at the university as part of the wider sustainability campaign that also includes our work on the Living Wage.You can find the document that we submitted to Council with proposals on casual contracts, privatisation and the Living Wage here:Sustainability campaign – Council document final
Our survey for teachers on casualised contracts
We have launched a survey for staff (including postgraduate students) who are employed to teach at the University. Please complete the survey if you are paid by the hour to teach, or have taught on casual (non-permanent) teaching contracts in either this or the previous academic year. This includes Teaching Affiliates, hourly paid lecturers, tutors, teaching assistants, demonstrators, lab or studio assistants, staff employed to teach a particular module, staff on “rolling” contracts etc.
If you are not affected by this issue personally, you almost certainly know someone who is, so please also share with affected colleagues, and indeed anyone in contact with staff on insecure contracts.
We also have an open meeting on Wednesday 24th at 1.30 in Pope A17 to address this issue. Please share this poster widely: 24th Feb poster
