Campaign: Collecting signatures
HELP US IN PUTTING AN END TO THE EXPLOITATION OF ADJUNCT LECTURERS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BARCELONA
We are the Assemblea de Professorat Reclamant, a group of adjunct lecturers at the University of Barcelona (UB) that have been fighting for the last two years for the dignification of our precarious working conditions.
We demand a decent salary, a stable job and future.
We are now collecting signatures to request the Rector of the University of Barcelona to regularize our contracts. You can read and sign our petition in the form you will find at the bottom of this page.
We denounce the situation and explain our demands in this video:
There are 2,000 adjunct lecturers at the University of Barcelona, which amount to 40% of the total faculty. Our salary ranges from 300 to 500 euros a month and our teaching duties are between 50% and 75% of those of a regular professor, who earns 2,500 euros a month. Adjunct lecturers are supposed to be well-respected professionals who enrich university education with their expertise. In practice, however, most of us are researchers who teach core subjects and actively contribute to the university’s research groups. The University of Barcelona is fully aware of this situation, but hires us illegally in order to save money.
