Protecting students working conditions


The Union of Students in Ireland [USI] and SIPTU have partnered to create a Postgraduate Working Rights Charter to highlight and protect the working rights of postgraduate students accessing third level education. This campaign will roll out over the coming year, seeking the support of Higher Education Institutions to sign up their interest to become part of the campaign. 

The Charter contains 14 points, noting that Postgraduate students should: be paid for hours worked as part of their degree, have access to research and learning infrastructures, receive statement of their terms of work, and have access to proper work supports. It also promotes the national Living Wage for all paid hours worked, and the right of Student Union representation. 

This Charter seeks to highlight and better support students working in a professional capacity as part of or in line with the completion of their degree.
