57 reasons students are opposed to staff redundancies posted around IoP!
A leaked Standard and Poor document shows that KCL are in a "very strong" financial position, were warned against cutting staff-cost and that their capital investment plan is a "risk".
"I have spent many years as Professor and Dean of The Institute of Psychiatry and it distresses me that incompetent and callous KCL management is now so severely damaging it and its staff"
-Sir Robin Murray
make up to 120 academic staff at King's College London redundant, across the School of Medicine, Biomedical Sciences and the Institute of Psychiatry (IoP).
The most recent numers state that 57 staff are still at risk.
We strongly oppose these redundancies and are fighting back!
We are calling for an extended, more engaged consultation, with exhaustive exploration of alternatives and comprehensive assessment of the consequences on teaching and research.
During the IoP Dean's update on Monday 28th, we posted 57 reasons students oppose these redundancies along the walls.
See the pictures below!
We have over 5000 signatures on our petition (thank you !) - now help us hit 5,500!
More and more people, across the world, are speaking out against the destructive and callous nature of these proposals.
