Casual Rotterdam is an action group that aims to unite staff and students at EUR to discuss and effect change regarding current issues of casualisation (temporary contracts), structural overwork and other precarious working conditions at the university.

As part of the Netherlands-wide Casual Academy, inspired by local initiatives at Leiden University (Casual Leiden), and action groups in Utrecht, Nijmegen en Groningen (such as zeropointseven (0.7), among others), we gather to discuss how we can organise for change at EUR. We particularly aim to unite fixed-term and permanent EUR staff in organising for change, so we call on teaching staff (tutors and D4’s), PhD’s, Postdocs, assistant professors, associate professors, and professors to join this initiative. Students are also encouraged to join the initiative as these issues directly affect the quality of their education.
