Today a statement from the university confirmed that we have defeated TeachHigher.
The scheme, which was little more than a badly disguised attack on vulnerable staff, is not going ahead.
This is, however, not enough. Halting the pilot is a first step towards better working conditions for hourly paid workers, it must be followed by concrete improvements. UCU are demanding that the university place hourly-paid staff on fractional contracts that give them the same pay, conditions and rights as those on open-ended contracts, and of course, we whole heartedly support them.
Fighting together, as students and staff, we can win. It is possible to reshape the university. Warwick For Free Education looks forward to the many more victories to come.
