Fixed term contracts

Fixed term contract employees must be treated no differently from other employees, with regard to employment conditions, holiday pay, protection under health and safety legislation, access to pension schemes, maternity and paternity leave, and other matters.

Where a number of fixed term contracts run consecutively, this should lead to permanent (open-ended) employment status as early as possible and certainly after four years.

As Rector, I would be vigilant in ensuring consistency across Schools and departments, and in developing constructive dialogue with the incoming EUSA officers and the University with regard to the objectives outlined in the NUS/UCU Charter on Postgraduates.
