Work faster, work cheaper – work worse. That’s the only language college
and university bosses seem to know nowadays.
Any concern for the quality of our teaching, the quality of our lives or
the quality of the education our students receive is vanishing.
It is important that you win this fight, for your own sakes but also for
the sakes of the rest of us.
We support you in your fight.
