A Tale of Two Academics

Polly and sally

Feb 2011 at the university of auckland...

I'm Sally. I've just been appointed as a senior tutor

I'm Polly and I'm a ptf* employed on an 11 month contract

*Professional teaching fellow

Both polly and sally do the same work, the only difference is that polly must get her teaching materials signed off by someone else

In July 2012 Both Polly and Sally are seriously sick and are off work for one month

I was paid for the entire month I was off work

I Only got 5 days pay, the rest was taken as unpaid leave

In Sept 2012 Both Sally and Polly find they are pregnant

I Got the Govt leave and the University's 9 week paid parental leave

I Didn't get the university's 9 week paid leave as my contracts have only been for 11 months at a time

March 2013

I've moved up two steps on the ST ladder automatically and i'm earning nearly $5000 more than when I started in 2011

PTFs do not get any automatic increments, unlike senior Tutors

I have not moved up any scale since joining the university

May 2013

I'm off to melbourne uni for a month on sabatical to learn about new and innovative teaching techniques

I've asked if I can have a month's sabatical, but I've been refused as I'm a ptf and teaching development is all done in house

Feb 2014 and both Sally and polly have been publishing in a and a* journals

I applied for transfer to the lecturer scale and I got it, I'm now a lecturer

I'm stuck as a ptf, i have to wait until a lecturing position becomes avaliable in my department

PTFS must be employed on the same terms and conditions as other academics at the University of Auckland

where is the fairness in the treatment of sally and polly?

Polly as a ptf is denied a number of other contractual benefits that sally as a senior tutor gets. For example, polly does not get reimbursed for travel to different campuses, polly is not entitled to payment of any course fees, the list goes on....
