2nd Information meeting on Austrian university employment law in English – 19. Sept., 5pm

We would like to familiarize all non-German speaking colleagues with the current legal situation in Austria. While we cannot offer immediate legal support, we want to raise awareness among the scientific staff about the potential implications of the changed legislation. We will give information about the official institutions already in place to represent employees’ interests at Austrian universities (“Arbeiterkammer”, “Betriebsrat”). We will also introduce local university initiatives taking action against precarious employment. Last but not least, another goal of the meeting is to learn about the perspective of the international researcher community on the present situation in Austria and include them into the ongoing organizing process.
