University Lecturers under Work Pressure

Almost seven in 10 university academic staff say they have to work under a lot of pressure and 70% do at least six hours overtime a week, according to a survey by trade union federation FNV. About 60% of academic staff, including PhDs, have a flexible or short term contract, a FNV spokesman  said. ‘This means there is great pressure [on staff] to stand out and to be considered for another short-term or a permanent contract.”
