Support Sussex Porters

We, the undersigned, have noted with dismay and amazement the intention of the university management to effectively reduce the salaries of the porters by cutting their conditional overtime and changing rotas which will require them to work until 11.30pm for less money. We believe it is unethical to leave the salaries of highly paid senior managers untouched and to seek to make cuts from the salaries of those in a far more modest income bracket. The porters are integral to the smooth running of day-to-day operations in this university; they are efficient, reliable and possess a spirit of loyalty to the institution, its staff and its students. We feel strongly that the porters are part of the university community and, like everyone else, deserve the same level of respect and collegiality that we are all entitled to. On the above grounds, we urge the management to abandon these plans which are unfair, undeserved, and unnecessarily put to the test the loyalty of a category of support staff who, day in and day out, make their contribution to the universityâ
