Australie - Majority of academics are casual

Casualisation of the Australian academic workforce has long been of concern to education unions but until now no-one knew the full extent. So revelations that casual academics far outnumber those with permanent or ongoing employment have shocked the entire community. A study by a PhD research student at Griffith University in Brisbane found that 67,000 academics were working as casuals in the nation’s universities. This means 60% of the academic workforce has no guarantee of employment and most have no holiday or sick leave entitlements.(
