Compensate St Andrews Students For Strike Action
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!
We, the undersigned students of the University of St Andrews, (using conservative figures) demand £980 of compensation for every international student and £460 for every RUK student who loses contact time due to the upcoming strike action from the 22nd of February to the 16th of March 2018. We judge this to be a fair share of the annual tuition fee, which will be lost in the anticipated lecture cancellations. This was determined based on the 14 days of striking representing 9.6% of our contact days. 54% of the university's expenditure for the most recently published financial year was on staff - so 54% x (tuition fee (£19,000 and £9,000 respectively) x 9.6%).
Although we must support the right for lecturers to strike, and recognise that strike action will lead to better conditions for students and staff combined, as consumers, we must protest against losing what we pay so much for.
This petition is not designed to negate the reasons for strike action. It simply aims to seek compensation for the repercussions and neglect that this strike imposes on students during term time.
