Bicycle protest against temporary contracts

During the opening of the academic year on Monday 31 August the FNV union, the general education association AOb and action group WoinActie will organise a protest action by bike against temporary contracts in higher education. 

According to the organisations, temporary contracts force scientific talent to ‘cycle’ from university to university. “It is a waste of valuable talent, it increases the already abnormally high workload, and creates social insecurity,” writes the AOb. 

On the protest day, participants are expected to cycle from one university city to another. The TU Delft campus is also a starting location: participants are asked gather at 12.30 PM at the entrance of the aula. The finish of the tour will be in Rotterdam.
