Casual teaching assistants – let’s talk

Over 100 casual staff, mainly teaching assistants, responded to our survey and we have taken the responses into a series of meetings with HR.  Casuals and variable hours staff are excluded from the staff survey, so their voices are not heard by university managers.

UCU has an agreement with the university from 2009 that guarantees fractional contracts to any casual teaching assistant who has worked at least 322 hours (0.2) for more than two years.  Future talks will focus on the implmentation of the agreement and on improving the terms and conditions of the hundreds of TAs not covered by the agreement.  Please sign the UCU petition now if you’ve not yet done that.
