UCL occupation demands

We demand that UCL:
  • Issue a statement condemning all cuts to higher education and the rise in tuition fees.
  • Implement a complete open books policy with regards to existing budget constraints.
  • Ensure no redundancies for teaching, research or support staff.
  • Reverse its outsourcing policy by bringing staff back in-house
  • Implement the full living wage package for all cleaning, catering and security staff with no cuts to hours and jobs.
  • Ensure no victimisation or repercussions for anyone participating in the occupation.
  • Allow free access in and out of the occupation.

    Solidarity from the #savemdxphil campaign! This is an excellent list of demands.

    “Ensure no redundancies for teaching, research or support staff”

    Does this include admin staff?

    Absolutely support you in your protest against higher tuition fees and government cuts!
    However, your demands address two other unrelated issues:
    Living wage for cleaning staff – also a worthy cause but not related to government proposals. I would support a protest on this issue as well!
    UCL redundancies and outsourcing – this may be a result of cuts so you should target the cause not the effect, or it may just be a result of a large organisation making sure it is not spending more than it needs to in delivering its services (education and research) which is a necessary part of running a large institution responsibly and not related to your cause. Whether redundancies are necessary in this context is another question. It’s good to see you supporting staff but I hope it doesn’t muddy the message to government.
