The Board of Tampere University promised in its meeting in November 2019 that the Board will organise a discussion event about the rules of procedure in March connected to its meeting. Although it was not possible to arrange the event due to the current state of emergency, we want to remind that it is crucial to promote discussion on the rules of procedure already during this spring.
On Wednesday, the chief shop stewards filed a local bargaining initiative on the harmonisation of salaries and job titles. The chief shop stewards find that the harmonisation of salaries and job titles has not progressed in the way required by the general collective agreement for universities, which would ensure that the employees are equally treated in the harmonisation of job titles and salary levels.
Tampere University’s chief shop stewards recommend that university lecturers and university instructors ignore the provision in the work plan guideline that makes their jobs more teaching-focused and increases the number of hours related to teaching. The provision that would make all the university lecturer and university teacher jobs teaching-oriented – i.e. teaching making up more than half of the hours in the work plan – is controversial.
Tampere University Union of Researchers and Teachers will organize its spring assembly on Thursday, 23 April, from 5 p.m. to approximately 6.30 p.m.
The negotiations for a new collective agreement at the university sector continued on Friday 28th February. Exactly two years ago, on the coldest day of the winter, the staff at the University of Helsinki striked historically for the first time. The strike was supported by ”We are the university” demonstrations in different university cities.
There is some confusion about the fees paid for part-time teaching. Based on employees contacting JUKO’s shop stewards, it seems that the fees have been lowered.
