Contract Clinic/TA Open meeting Thursday 13/10 18pm Francis Bancroft 4.26

There will be a QMUCU open meeting and contract clinic to discuss the new contracts and their implementation. HR has assured us that anyone teaching in the first semester will have received their contracts by the 10th of October, so we should be able to compare them within and across departments by then.

The meeting will be held at 6pm on Thursday the 13th of October in Francis Bancroft 4.26.

In preparation for the meeting, it would be great if  TAs could hold smaller meetings in their departments if possible, to look at any internal discrepancies. It would also be useful if i could get some sample contracts from different departments in advance, both this year’s and last year‘s so we can go through them and estimate losses and gains in advance of the meeting. Please send these to  If people are uncomfortable sending them through with their names, we are happy to look at anonymised contracts. We will be listing complaints to bring to HR via UCU. Further to this,and whilst we hope that this will be an opportunity to assess the contracts themselves, we really hope to have the time to discuss possible organising strategies, and a coherent plan for these.

Please circulate this information within your individual departments to TAs who might not yet be on the Qmac or QMUCU list.
