Compensation for Students affected by Strike Action

This petition had 3,542 supporters

As students of the University of Nottingham, we care about our education. So much so that we have invested £9,000 a year (or more if you're an international student) into the university.

We, students of the University of Nottingham, 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 are not in full support of the pension 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. Especially considering some of us students will lose more than £300 resulting from the strike.  

Thus, £300 is 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. 

As consumers, we must protest against losing what we have paid for.
