Urgent: Petition to the Dean

Dear All,

Members of the union have carefully drafted a petition to the Dean of the Faculty of Science regarding the Service Innovation Program for Science, which can be viewed at the following link:

Hard copies are available in the tea-room for signing.

Please read the petition carefully. The deadline for signing the petition is 4 pm Monday 14 November.

Anyone associated with the School should be encouraged to sign the petition, including academic staff, honorary staff and students. (There is no need to be a member of the union.) Please help to make our collective voice heard.
