First Good Job Award trade union AOb to UM

The Dutch trade union for educational staff AOb has awarded its first-ever Good Job Award to UM. AOb president Tamar van Gelder reports that 'this university is showing that things can be done differently', by which she refers to UM's efforts to offer permanent contracts to more lecturers.

The Good Job Award is an AOb award to encourage educational institutions to offer as few temporary contracts as possible. UM aims for a maximum of 10 to 15 per cent temporary contracts. In the education sector, the average of these is now 60 per cent.
