UCL teaching assistants to unveil research on unpaid work at open meeting

After this week’s publication of a damning report by campaigners at Kings College London on the extent of unpaid work at that university, another local campaign is about to unveil the results of another investigation into the exploitation of postgraduate teaching assistants.

The Fair Play for TAs campaign at University College London has called an open meeting on Tuesday to release the results of their own survey and what the next steps should be for their local campaign to tackle exploitation. Their evidence shows that, for those UCL postgraduate teaching assistants who are paid at all, 40% of hours worked go unpaid. And 4% of their respondents worked as teaching assistants completely for free! The campaign has called for UCL PhD students to join the meeting, and says that supporters are also welcome.

Open meeting:
17:30 Tuesday 19 May

B03 (Ricardo Lecture Theatre), Drayton House, UCL, 30 Gordon Street
