UCU Pay Rises for Lecturers
A call for a pay rise for lecturers that matches inflation.
Since August 2009 the pay rise offered to Lectures at the University of Greenwich and many other Universities has failed to meet inflation and the cost of living.
This is combined with higher payments to pension funds in addition to the fact that many lecturers are still repaying their own student loan. We need to support those who teach us. You may be aware that Lecturers have been striking frequently as their calls for a pay rise have not been met, this is due to continue and if you want to help stop striking and support those who work hard and deserve a pay rise, that simply matches the cost of living then please sign the petition to show your support.
The UCU estimates that although generally lecturers are contracted 36 hours a week these members of staff often work an additional 10 hours of unpaid labour on top of this. Our staff are an asset and deserve to be respected. They are not striking to cancel lecture but simply because they have no other options.
