Wednesday 8 November, 1pm – 2pm
Baines wing 1.13
As part of our work putting together a claim on the gender pay gap at the University of Leeds and tackling the casualisation of jobs at the University of Leeds we’d like to invite you and any other staff to a meeting on Wednesday to discuss these issues.
Please pass this on to any colleagues who may have an interest in these issues (and who doesn’t have an interest in equal pay and permanent jobs?!).
This meeting is open to non-members as well as members.
Concerned about the gender pay gap? Fixed term? Hourly paid? Agency? Variable or Zero hours? All of the above?
We want to hear about the experiences of staff at Leeds on these kinds of contracts.
Permanent, salaried member of staff?
This meeting is also for you to learn more about issues facing your colleagues & to share ideas.
UCU is committed to equal pay and to fighting the abuses faced by staff on casualised contracts within further and higher education. We hope that all members will support these campaigns and stand with colleagues on casual contracts to put an end to such abuse.
Casualisation + Gender Pay = key issues for UCU
These are issues for all staff.
Be part of the UCU campaign!
