The Guardian has published a series of articles in the past few days about the increase in casualisation in HE, we know that these contracts are blighting FE as well. UCU has worked extremely hard, the national Anti-Casualisation Committee in particular, to raise the profile of this detrimental increase in insecure jobs with a national anti-casualisation campaign but regretfully, the decision to backdown from our pay dispute this week came at the expense of taking casualisation in our sector off the national collective bargaining table. Bad timing as this major concern from our members has just been given national publicity in the mainstream press.
I’ve written a letter to The Guardian in response to their articles. Please read, add your signature and circulate to your colleagues.
