I have not been paid for working hours this month. I was unable to order research goods for several weeks (post the 'go-live' date), and I have outstanding debts with external suppliers that is comprising mine and the University's reputation. Communication has been terrible and I have received rude and unhelpful responses when completely lost for help. Further to this, the stipend increase in line with inflation has not been actioned, despite other students at partnership universities recieving theirs. Unacceptable from such an institution.

Thanks for adding your voice.

UoB is a disgrace and personally I think big Dave should pay the student wages out of his own pocket xx

The way the University is treating its student workers is as chavalier as its treatment of low paid staff!

What is going on at University of Birmingham? Don't pay living wage to support staff and now this. Appalling employer.
