Treat demonstrators fairly!

This petition had 497 supporters

Dear Professor Gaskell,

Teaching at Queen Mary relies on the support of hundreds of people working as Demonstrators (sometimes also called Teaching Assistants). They have:

  • no contract
  • no job profile to limit their responsibilities or provide for paid preparation time
  • and their pay has fallen far behind that of other staff in recent years.

These problems need to be resolved urgently, for the sake of these precarious staff, their students and the reputation of Queen Mary. Please ensure that a clear job profile is agreed urgently and give Demonstrators contracts with fair pay from next academic year.
