Wymondham College against the Matron pay cuts
From next year Matron Wages will be cut significantly, for new unneeded “carers”. Also, there will be only one matron during the night for the entire boarding house. As you know, Matron’s already have great responsibility during the night, and this would just double their work load. Matron’s are people who have helped bring us up and we have grown to trust. They are being almost replaced by a “cost effective” system of young carers, who are students, around 21 years old, who have to take on the responsibility of one of the most demanding jobs in the college, who won’t be able to deal with the vast number of issues matrons sort out every day.
