The report on the Diggers’ Forum survey of away work is now finished and has been emailed or posted to all DF members. The report is over 100 pages long and contains two key sets of recommendations, intended to bring much needed clarity to the advertisement of archaeological jobs, and to improve the terms and conditions for employees who travel or work away; the main report can be downloaded here.
Please read through the report, discuss it with your colleagues and let the forum know what your comments and views are, particularly on the recommendations on advertising archaeological jobs, and on travel and away work.
Diggers’ Forum are moving on to the next step in their campaign, and are asking the IfA, FAME, Registered Organisations, employers and unions to join the DF in discussions as to how we put the recommendations into practice. Finally, they would like to thank all the individuals and organisations that took part in the survey.
Please contact Diggers’ Forum if you are a DF member and have not recieived your copy, or require a hardcopy.
