QMUCU meeting on hourly-paid teaching 2 December 1-2pm

Are you a TA, an hourly-paid lecturer, or a demonstrator at Queen Mary? Or is your teaching or department supported by these staff? If so, QMUCU wants to hear from you!

Hourly-paid Teaching at Queen Mary: Open Meeting
Wednesday 2 December, 1-2pm, Arts One 1.28 all welcome

There are hundreds of hourly-paid staff at Queen Mary who are vital to teaching in the college.  As you may know, their hourly rate has remained the same since 2008. QMUCU campaigned last year for a pay rise to proportionately match those of permanent and fixed term colleagues, but our request was unsuccessful. The college has agreed, however, to review pay, terms and conditions of hourly-paid teaching staff with an aim to implement changes in time for the beginning of next academic year.
We want to hear from you about your experiences of hourly-paid teaching at Queen Mary to inform upcoming negotiations with the college.
Whether you are an hourly-paid member of staff, a PhD student, or a permanent or fixed term colleague, please join us in discussing how we can help improve pay and conditions for these important groups of staff.
While there are well over 600 hourly-paid teachers at Queen Mary, these staff are currently under-represented within UCU membership. Please help us reach out to them by circulating this meeting date in your department. All members and non-members are welcome.

In solidarity,
QMUCU Branch Committee
