PGR manifesto launch

PGRs as employees - the launch of the PGR manifesto

We are holding another event, as part of our 'PGRs as employees' campaign on Thursday 1 July.

In the morning (10am - 12pm) will be giving an update on the campaign and looking at how the status of postgraduate researchers (PGRs) is viewed in other countries and what we can learn from that.

We'll also be launching our new PGR manifesto which has been developed with PGRs as a campaign tool and stepping-stone to securing employee status.

In the afternoon (2- 4pm) we will be working in smaller groups, introducing our new branch handbook and exploring how we can campaign and bargain for the manifesto with local employers.

Anyone who is interested in improving conditions for PGRs is welcome to attend.

The sessions will be held remotely via Zoom and you will be provided with a unique link shortly before the event.
