SCAN: “47% of academics on precarious contracts”

This was the first article I wrote for SCAN as News Editor. It points out that, while fees are likely to rise, working conditions for academics are still poor.

This piece involved lengthy research into claims made by the staff union, UCU, as well as interviews with representatives from the Students Union and the University Press Office.

It was shared on Twitter by ex-leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett, and quickly became my most-read article on SCAN.

The article is online and available to read here.
