Teaching only contracts – UCU calls for joint review in Bath

During the last year your UCU reps in Bath have raised a number of concerns about staff employed on a range of teaching-only contracts.  These include staff with the job titles of teaching fellow, variable hours teaching fellow, part-time teaching fellow, fractional teaching fellow, casual teaching assistant, GTA.  We have carried out two surveys of staff on teaching only contracts, and these have produced large responses and highlighted a number of common concerns.    We have submitted a summary statement of these concerns to university managers through the formal machinery of negotiation, and we have requested a joint review of the use of teaching only contracts in the university.  We await the Vice Chancellor’s response.
