We have crunched the numbers and prepared the Powerpoint presentation below describing the results of the most recent survey of Instructional Academic Staff at UWEC.
The main findings concern both the terms of employment and employee morale. The survey documents widespread problems with appointment letters and employment policies: not only do IAS work year-after-year with very little job security and low pay, they work very hard and face pressure to do more than what they are paid to do. As a result, IAS are not happy. Pay, promotion opportunities, and job security are the three most widespread sources of dissatisfaction, though many IAS also feel disrespected by their faculty colleagues and feel their work is not valued by others.
Change is possible.
We are holding two meetings (both in-person and online) to determine what changes we would like to see:
Thursday, March 31, from 3:30-5:00 in Centennial 1704
Friday, April 8, from 3:30-5:00 in Centennial 1804
Please attend one or both so you can have your voice heard! Contact us if you would like the Zoom link, or if you would like more information about the survey and the data.
