Joshua Jones started this petition to University of Nottingham

Despite the current health crisis, and the resultant national lockdown, the University of Nottingham has made the decision to keep research laboratories open.  I believe this decision is a gross mistake and the university has not taken into consideration the health concerns of its research students and staff, especially with the emergence of a more infectious covid variant.

I have drafted a statement of concern that highlights my fears and feelings toward this situation, which has been distributed throughout the universities postgrad research community.  If my statement aligns with your worries and feelings then I would appreciate your support by signing this petition.  It is my hope that the university will open a dialogue between the management teams who set the rules, and those of us who are expected to continue working with the risks covid poses. This way we can come to some sort of conclusion that can take into account the various positions and viewpoints of its PGR members.

If you wish to remain anonymous then you can either enter that as your name, or select the tickbox under the Sign Petition button.  Alternatively you could enter your position in the university (PhD, Postdoc, Technical staff etc) in place of your name so we can see which work areas are affected.

Thank you all for your support, and I hope there can be some conclusion to this situation.

Stay safe,

Josh
