Some will not examine candidates’ files on Parcoursup, others will not follow up on students who complete their professional internships. Many will resign at the start of their administrative functions, which they have occupied with enthusiasm for several years. For the first time in their career, they will jam the system, the only way, they assure, to make their voices heard.
This coup de force is carried out by the Collectif 384, which brings together a thousand teachers with hybrid status: agrégé, certified and vocational high school teachers who teach not in secondary education but at university, and provide 384 hours of annual courses, i.e. twice as many as teacher-researchers. These 13,000 “secondary school teachers assigned to higher education” (ESAS) are sometimes in the majority in certain university institutes of technology (IUT) and higher national institutes of teaching and education (Inspé).
The object of their wrath: the compensation scheme for teaching-researcher and research staff (Ripec), in force since 1er January 2022, which excludes the ESAS from any gratuity. “Until now, we received the same bonus as teacher-researchers, amounting to 1,200 euros per year.recalls Nicolas Domergue, spokesperson for the collective, teacher at the IUT of Puy-en-Velay. We ask for equal treatment by adopting an equivalent mechanism. » By 2027, Ripec will allow all teacher-researchers to receive a statutory bonus of 6,400 euros per year.
A ministerial “in-between”
Still with Ripec, only teacher-researchers benefit from functional allowance, related to the exercise of specific responsibilities – missions that the ESAS also fulfill. “Like teacher-researchers, we also very often exercise administrative and pedagogical responsibilities which are most of the time added to our teaching service, executive Sarah Goutagny, deputy director in charge of training at IUT Jean-Moulin Lyon-III. In addition to our statutory obligations – limited to teaching hours, correction relating to these hours, and juries -, we ensure the follow-up of internships, the promotion of our training in fairs, the recruitment of students, missions which are not or very little remunerated. »
For the Ministry of Higher Education, the explanation is simple: the ESAS have no “no research mission”, which places them ipso facto out of the field of Ripec. They receive a bonus which “has almost doubled in two years, going from 1,259 to 2,308 euros, and will be further revalued to reach more than 3,200 euros in 2025”, we argue. That is twice less than what their colleagues will eventually receive under Ripec’s statutory compensation alone.
