Edinburgh agrees to negotiate with UCU on casualisation

4 July 2018 | last updated: 12 July 2018

The University of Edinburgh has agreed to a timetable of negotiations to address the union's concerns over casualisation. 

UCU submitted a claim for action on fixed-term teaching fellowships and hourly paid staff pay and conditions in February, and since then the branch and its anti-casualisation group have been campaigning and pressing to secure these commitments.

UCU is targeting other Russell Group universities who are some of the worst offenders in their treatment of casualised staff.
