Fair Pay for PGs who Teach
Warwick SU has an ongoing commitment to support postgraduates who teach. Following on from last year’s efforts, we’ll be continuing to fight for fair pay and working conditions for postgraduate teachers this year. As a Students’ Union, as Undergraduates and Postgraduates alike, we support our postgraduate students in their work as teachers, researchers and valued members of our community, and we strive to afford you the respect that you deserve from the University.
Postgraduates who teach are now entitled to FREE UCU (University and College Union) membership.
Warwick SU is proud to be supporting a nationwide campaign to promote free UCU membership to our postgraduate members.
To join the UCU, visit www.ucu.org.uk. Get in touch with your Warwick UCU branch at https://warwickucu.org.uk/.
Sessional Teaching Payroll Survey
Some of you may remember that the STP – Sessional Teaching Payroll – was in its trial phase over the past couple of years. It is now firmly in place for this academic year. Through STP, different roles which teaching staff undertake are placed on a remuneration ladder. This is set on a departmental basis. One of our concerns as STP is implemented is that there may be variation in the ways in which roles are categorised, from department to department.
More information about STP can be found here.
We’re currently researching the different ways that STP is being implemented in departments, and this is where your help comes in.
If you’re a Postgraduate Researcher, fill in our survey. With your consent, we’d like to keep in touch with you about our future campaigning.
