List of questions to be posed to your CvB
In the latest CAO, employers have committed to address the structural dependence of universities on casual work in local negotiation committees (lokaal overleg). We are sceptical of this promise. However, we are prepared to give employers a semester to prove us wrong.
The following are suggestions for local branches of the Casual Academy, 0.7, local union branches as well as University Councils to demand solid plans from their CvBs before 20 December to address the demands of the Casual Academy and 0.7 and to hold them accountable by the end of the fall semester 2021.
Faculty Councils, Opleidingscommissies and Institute Advisory Boards could use similar questions at Faculty, programme and institute levels to hold their administrators accountable.
After the 20th December, we will suspend our good faith and launch action locally and nationally to force employers to take our demands seriously.
To this end we are calling for a national day of action on the 14th February (Valentine's) around the theme that the University will not love us back. On that day we are calling for activists to organise walk outs, demonstrations, sit ins, public meetings etc. around our three demands: end casualization, end structural overwork, ensure a safe working environment.
