RUCU survey of ‘casual’ and ‘atypical’ contracts at the University of Reading (UoR)

The Reading UCU Committee is launching a survey to collect information on pay and conditions of work of colleagues on ‘casual’ and ‘atypical’ contracts across the University.

‘Fractional’, ‘term time only’, ‘sessional’, ‘hourly-paid’, ‘zero-hours’ … are all terms which are increasingly becoming part of the academic employment scene and it should be clear by now that insecure and atypical contracts are disadvantageous not only for those who hold them, but undermine the security of all academic posts.

Reading UCU is committed to improving the pay and conditions of work of staff on such contracts and to restricting the use of sessional employment to a minimum. The survey will help us to gather evidence on the local situation. This will strengthen our negotiating position with the University.
