National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts
A coalition of students and workers fighting against tuition fees and education cuts
Next Day of Action
I am, like many, angry at the governments austerity programme and I am particularly angry at the increase in student fees. I would like to know when the next protest is, how I can participate and where I can participate. Thankyou, Laurence Hobbs.
Stop using gmail. There are so many other non-corporate email providers that won’t hand over all your emails and details to the police and soon as they ask.
whens the next one in London then, or you waiting a while?

TO MORE EASILY GET FEES PAID?

Though difficult putting all the idea in a Text – and though I doubt they’d contact you – I sent the following to Sky News & the BBC…
And so for your own Edit to Clear and to go with an examination of what it can possibly be made to pertain to…
I quote exactly…
TuitionFees: Govt needs agree twixt NUS&employers that students have=toBenefits+costs for 1Yrs work with [deemed @ £6k for that].. it paid by Employers contracting for 2Yrs with Yr2 paid pro-rata & Employer pays Bonus=to £6k at Yr1 end & when Placement Quotas need to be agreed by public&private Sectors&other Unions & the work offered to reflect what exams Debt was originally for & students also able to transact own placements would help !!
As you see, my text-space was filled quite full for that particular germ of an idea…
But though obviously just a rough idea as different ££figures etc may end applying in any proper Scheme(s) if taken up…
I note Government has had many past schemes with Claimants in receipt of Income Support/Unemployment Benefit + Extras thrown in for expenses & with a part wage etc…
And where ideas were for actual Work Training on the Job at a same time regarded as being in Employment & for National Insurance purposes…
I hope my idea helps with fine tuning & additions to of it, if my text-speak was not too dense to follow. I think you could get a lot of support from broader Union movement.
Regards for your struggle,

PS I should say that, as for there being any scheme, many students would be on benefits for at least a year anyway – and as soon as they leave University…
And it would be the case that while an Employer would pay £6k fees and then an immediate £6k bonus after – the Employer actually gets quite fair Labour for a year!!
If the fees were £9k the bonus could be cut to £3k. Adn not that it would matter because agreements would be for two years work – and the sooner the fees were out of the way (i.e quite paid off in 12 months) [then I don't think anybody would complain too much when going on to proper rates immediately afterwards].
Presumably loans to help students out could be made on the understanding that they were to receive a bonus too. And this would help with moving & settling expenses or whatever else could be needed to ensure a smooth transition to work with of course the Employer supplying relevant safety etc matters if any and just like any other employee.
