FIGHT TO SAVE OUR ART SHOP STAFF
The University is proposing to make Jo and Jim redundant (to cut university spending and costs) and intend to advertise the job roles to those who are simply not qualified to assist us artistically. The job will be offered to the staff who are being made redundant from estates and services (such as coffee shops) and, with no disrespect intended, whilst these members of staff are a valued part of the community, they will not have the technical knowledge, experience and understanding that we have all been so lucky to experience with Jo and Jim.
This is yet another ploy by the university to attack the creative arts, in my opinion, this is one of the first steps to get rid of most of the creative courses, we’ve all seen how desperate they are to try and close our courses...DO NOT sit by and allow your extortionate tuition fees to go towards building another million pound science building. This is a valuable resource and part of what makes our School of Arts such an enjoyable community. FIGHT TO SAVE OUR ART SHOP!
