UEA staff car park charges are unfair and need to be reviewed
Increased charges! Less Spaces! Do you feel cheated?
The University of East Anglia (UEA) has recently increased the amount of money that members of staff have to pay to park their car at work. In doing this UEA have created an unfair system that penalises lower paid members of staff and part time workers.
There is also a shortage of spaces that has been made worse by the closure of 200 spaces at Blackdale.
UEA has made great strides by agreeing to pay the minimum of the living wage to all workers but the changes to car park costs means that many members of staff will now be worse off.
After 4 years of below inflation pay rises UEA staff members are already struggling financially. The parking charge increase is one more cost that no one can afford.
Parking is a problem that will not go away. UNISON want UEA to review all parking charges and to consider the impact the changes have made to all staff members. We then want UEA to introduce a system that is fair and affordable for all. The shortage of available spaces also needs to considered by UEA and a clear, forward thinking, parking strategy must be implemented.
We are asking that all UEA staff members sign this petition to support UNISONs campaign to introduce a fair system for all.
