QM Teaching Staff Wage from 2009

Hourly-paid academic teaching staff at Queen Mary are currently on the same wage as they were in 2009. Having lost out on almost 5% of pay rises to salaried academic staff since then, these statistics show how wages for all academic staff are declining in real terms, with the lowest paid being hit the hardest. This graph shows how the gap between the cost of living (the Consumer Price Index) and the income of hourly-paid teaching staff at Queen Mary is growing at an alarming rate. It would take a 15 or 16% pay rise this year for hourly-paid teaching staff to recover even the same position they were in 6 years ago. Even that would not repay the lost wages from pay rises that were not paid in the intervening years. Queen Mary Against Casualisation call for an end to these poor labour conditions. Together we can win better working conditions for staff, a better education for students, and a more sustainable and diverse university environment. Join us!
