Anti-casualisation of academic staff

Your Students’ Union stands in solidarity with our casualised PhD students. Our students are not receiving equitable pay or proper employment rights for all the work they do teaching on our campuses.

As an Officer team, we have written to Vice Chancellor Professor Shearer West to ask her to take action immediately – stopping these casualised contracts which cause unstable financial circumstances and in turn have a negative impact on students’ health and wellbeing.

Take a look at the letter we’ve written.

To show your support, come along to the demonstration we’re hosting with UCU on Portland Steps at 12 noon on Wednesday 12 December.
