The RUG’s on-call employees claim the hours they’ve worked in the subsequent month. If they worked in December, their wages will be paid in late January. The implementation of the AFAS-system Best Practice 2020 has made that impossible for this month. 

The FNV is reaching out to its members this week to warn them about this. To prevent financial troubles, the union says, on-call employees can email the human resources department to ask for money in advance. 

The RUG has 513 on-call employees, says spokesperson Jorien Bakker. ‘Of those, 162 are students, but none of them are teaching assistants. Those are two different categories of staff.’
