Tariff change for student assistants : Berlin universities, calling for five million more

The high school principals are calling from the Land of Berlin "at least five million euros per year" as compensation for the recording of student labor in the collective bargaining agreement of the Federal States (TVL). This amount was calculated in the national conference of rectors and presidents (LKRP) a provisional basis, said TU President Christian Thomsen, Chairman of the LKRP, the daily mirror. He'll be due if, instead of the student, the collective agreement TV-Stud of the TVL is applied, as required by the current case law.

Alternatively, the Senate should go ahead with an Amendment to the higher education act, through the employment of student assistants in the administration possible, so Thomsen.

The TU-in-chief and the LKRP-Vice slowing Monika Gross from the Beuth University of applied Sciences and Martin Rennert, of the University of the arts not only warn against the financial consequences. "For our students in University-related Jobs merit fall away ways which you are instructed that you can exclusively open and are of fundamental importance, in order to fulfill our tasks," says Rennert.

Large indicates that the Jobs are threatened, which will contribute to a better quality of teaching, for example in the processing of student evaluations of Teaching or extended library opening hours.

Why the TVL should be a Jobkiller? As reported, see the universities led to the change of tariff after labour courts have criticized a employment of students in non-academic areas according to the TV Stud as not in conformity with the law. The higher education act specifies the activities to "research and teaching". Jobs in the library, in the high school counseling of Refugees, in the IT or in press are not included.

What makes the difference?

To distinguish scientific and non-scientific activities, the Forum "Good work on the Berlin universities has developed a" now a criteria to determine which students need to be in the TVL busy.

The catalogue of work is called court judgments to appropriate cases, and is the basis for a first rough estimate of the LKRP, how many students could be affected by the re-deployment (2500) and what is the cost of the extra (at least five million euros in the year).

Resulting in the more costs? The income group E2 with an hourly wage of 12.86 euros is the Equivalent to the TV-Stud-set of 12.50 euros. But the employer is gross in the TVL was significantly higher, the other countries collective self-a simple, supportive computer would be classified tasks, is higher than E2, if you find anything the staff says Rennert.

Would not the requested five million euros from the country, would have to eliminate the Jobs and in order for the Service to "a greater extent".

Secretary of state of noise: "No renegotiation option"

As a risk, the universities also see the expected resistance of the staff councils against TVL job with only 40 hours in a month, as you need students. Because some of the Posts would also be other job seekers are open for such "precarious" employment is not reasonable, warns Thomsen.

Therefore, the universities hope that there will be an extension of the higher education act in order to "science-supporting" activities – following the example of lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein. But there is unfortunately still no support in the red-red-green coalition, complained to the LKRP-to-peak.
