Caledonian unions celebrate impact of migration


onedayStaff and students came out for a quick pic on the nationally organised ‘One Day Without Us’ day of action on February 20th.

Speaking after the photoshoot UCU local president Douglas Chalmers said “there’s hardly a family in the West of Scotland which isn’t built on immigration either now or in the past. And it’s not only Scotland that has benefited from migrants coming here – waves of Scottish born people have taken their talents abroad and used them for the benefit of others.

The University sector has gained particularly from foreign born talent coming here and helping our scholarship and research – and of course we’ve benefited from the may hundreds of thousands of students who have experienced Scotland’s education and who have then decided to stay on and use their talents for the betterment of all”
