Outsourced workers at the University of London’s Central Administration and several of its constituent colleges such as SOAS and Birkbeck work under exploitative conditions and are entitled to paltry workplace benefits. This means that most of these workers are not offered a pension scheme that is worth buying into and receive only the legal minimum for holidays and sick pay, which results in not enough time to go home and visit family and being constrained to work while sick. This mostly immigrant workforce is campaigning to receive the same sick pay, holiday, and pension entitlements as their colleagues who work directly for the University, and in the case of SOAS, to end out-sourcing altogether.
