How will the framework agreement affect hourly paid staff?

The framework agreement applies to hourly paid staff as it applies to all other staff.

There is a JNCHES agreement on the assimilation of hourly-paid staff in the post-92 sector and UCU policy that all hourly paid lecturers should be assimilated to at least Ac2 (the entry level for lecturing staff).

Hourly paid staff academic should be assimilated to the new pay and grading structures by matching to the relevant national role profiles.

Hourly paid staff should then be afforded the right to progress thorough their grade in the same way as other staff.

Negotiation on the implementation of the framework agreement is also an excellent opportunity for the UCU to progress its aim of securing permanent pro-rata posts for hourly paid staff.
