The Covid payment petition has been signed by 528 QMUL members of staff

The Covid payment petition has now been signed by 568 people. This includes 528 members of staff and further 40 students and members of the wider community. Through our collective effort we surpassed our 500 signature threshold just before Christmas, which allowed us to publicise this petition and send it to the QMUL management. So far there has been no response – the management is failing to take even the simplest steps to ensure their staff wellbeing. This is unacceptable.

QMUCU will continue our efforts to demand a Covid payment for all staff. Over the coming weeks we are organising all-members QMUCU branch meetings to decide how to proceed on the numerous issues the QMUL management has failed. The first meeting is Thursday 21 January at 1 pm. This year has been exceedingly difficult for all staff and students. We deserve better treatment and a safe working environment.

If you have not signed the petition yet, you can do it here.


Petition demanding a Covid-19 Payment for all QMUL Staff sent to QMUL Management

As 2020 draws to a close, the news of a vaccination for the coronavirus offers hope to an end in sight for the pandemic in 2021. But meanwhile Queen Mary staff are still at home, trying to work in a crisis, or bravely coming to campus and risking their  health and safety. We are using our own personal computers, our kitchen tables, broadband networks, electricity and heating, all increasing our domestic bills. It is estimated that the Covid pandemic will lead to people paying £100 more in fuel bills this winter as a result

Under government guidelines employers have always been permitted to pay staff £6 a week extra tax free to cover some of these costs of working from home. Universities such as the University of Arts London have been paying their staff this since the first lockdown. But this  benefit does not reach staff who have to come to work on campus. In recognition of this the Open University have gone a step further and are giving ALL their staff a covid payment of £500. In the 2019-20 financial year, Queen Mary increased its cash reserves by almost £37m. The petition below from staff is asking for a Covid allowance of £200 for every member of staff (including Postgraduate students and precarious fixed term staff) in recognition of the loyalty and hard work they have provided this year. 

We promised we would not send this petition until we reached 500 signatures. Today we have reached 502 staff (now 528) signatures. This petition comes from all staff not just union members. We urge you to consider this request.
