Young and early career members meeting, 30 March 2011, 2.30-3.30, Bragg Lecture Theatre, Schuster Building
At a time of economic uncertainty, the challenges facing young and early career members are greater than ever. Young members face an increasingly competitive job market, and are much more likely to be on part time or temporary contracts. With pensions under attack, young/early career members stand to lose the most, and the possibility of a decline in earnings hangs over future academic careers.
You are invited to come along and hear about what the UCU is doing to support young members' issues both at Manchester and nationally.
Importantly, UCU Manchester would like to hear about the issues which matter to you, and this meeting is a chance for young members to meet colleagues, and share views.
