Letter from FBLS postgrads to the SCC

Prof. Paul Hagan, Dean, FBLS Redundancies in FBLS Dear Paul, As you will know, a large delegation of FBLS students, undergraduates and post-graduates, presented a petition against the staff cuts in FBLS on Wednesday 19th May. The Principle met with a small group of us and Laura Laws of the SRC kept a note of the outcome. The Principle said that if the Structural Change Committee needed extra time to find savings, it was in their remit to make this point to SMG, and that if the Committee felt that a salary cut was preferable to job losses (possibly through reduced hours per year?), and if the UCU could be persuaded of that, then it was up to the Structural Change Committee to suggest this. We have no way of telling how feasible these suggestions are, but, as postgraduates, we do hope that you will look at every possible avenue for the avoidance of the staff losses, both for the sake of the staff and students. Yours sincerely, The Post-graduates of FBLS

Glasgow University should take in account that overseas students came here for the good reputation of the staff that they what to dismiss them. This will effect the uni. reputation and make many of overseas students change their mind of studying here.

Cutting down the number of staff is no good in long term plan of attracting international student that can bring some profits to the univeristy.
