GCU Unions Lobby of Holyrood postponed due to Westminster events

Following the dreadful events at Westminster yesterday, and the knock-on impact on today’s proceedings at Holyrood, campus unions consulted with the MSPs who had agreed to meet us to discuss shared concerns regarding the GCU campus in New York.

Following these discussions it was felt appropriate to cancel today’s planned lobby and  to re-arrange our contact and discussions with the MSPs – a process which is now underway.

Earlier there had been coverage of the issue in the Glasgow Evening Times, which is downloadable here. Our demand for an independent audit of the NY project still holds, and the leaflet outlining the background to this is downloadable here
.

It was agreed that the monies saved from the cancellation of the chartered bus (the firm were very understanding in the circumstances and waived their charges), would be donated to an appropriate charity dealing with the aftermath of the Westminster events.

The Combined Union Committee will be meeting next week to discuss the next steps in our campaign for more transparency and dialogue with staff.
