Lobby of Heriot Watt Court

Lobby of Court Against Job Cuts – Heriot Watt Riccarton Campus, Monday 25 June 12.30 – 13.30pm

Heriot-Watt University proposes to cut funding in the School of Textiles and Design at the Galashiels campus. The cuts will remove 25% of the workforce. Many of the posts are part-time with some staff on fractional contracts so the impact of the cuts will be huge. All the trade unions oppose job cuts as an expedient way of cutting costs. UCU Scotland will be lobbying court to put pressure on Heriot Watt management to consider cuts of this scale more carefully and implement them with the flexibility they claim they want to show.  

We are looking for members and reps to come along in huge numbers to show support. Please bring your banners and placards

 The Court meeting will be held in the Lord Balerno room – link to the campus map below, its building B. Meet at the main reception 12.15pm onwards http://www.ma.hw.ac.uk/~bryan/hw_map_bw.pdf
