Compensation for Students affected by Strike Action

This petition had 8,120 supporters

We, as students of the University of Manchester, demand a minimum of £300 of compensation for every student who loses contact time due to the upcoming strike action from the 22nd of February to the 16th of March 2018, with talks already suggesting a continuation of this strike should no change occur in this time.

This is not to suggest that we, as students at UoM, are not in full support of the strike and we, of course, stand in solidarity with our tutors and lecturers alike. However this support does not overshadow the serious disruption this will cause to our studies.

Thus, we judge £300 to be a reasonable demand of the £9000 annual tuition fee that we already pay to this university, given the anticipated lecture and seminar cancellations during such a crucial period of the semester.
