The Provost Missed His Pay-Day Party. Nobody cried.

Organise, Educate, Escalate

We had a great time at the protest outside Provost Michael Arthur’s office today. It was a no-show for poor old Provost, however, even though we’d brought him cake!

(…seriously though, we despise the Provost)

Joining this protest against inequality at UCL were members form the UCL Justice for Cleaners Campaign and UCL UCU, who spoke about how cleaners are organising a campaign for better pay and conditions and how the top UCL fat cats are getting rich from cutting university workers’ pensions.

Cake to commemorate that Provost earns as much in 19 days as a cleaner earns in a year. Cake to commemorate that Provost earns as much in 19 days as a cleaner earns in a year.
