The casualisation of staff contracts in education is a disgrace. This workshop is for all UCU members regardless of their own contractual arrangements in that it seeks to explore the problem in order to do something about it. Through interactive discussions we will consider how we can build solidarity between those on permanent and precarious contracts.
The full aims of the interactive workshop are to:
- understand why casualisation is so damaging to education and staff
- understand what staff on casual contracts locally see as a priority for change
- understand how more securely employed staff can support casually employed staff in their workplaces
- be aware of the local and national UCU campaigns against casualisation and how they can contribute
