stop offering Amazon vouchers as incentives. Ask the uni to do the same.
In a time of pandemic and beyond, online retailers are claiming far more of the high street's trade, and yet the uni and union continue to offer Amazon vouchers as incentives for competitions, surveys, etc. As a university, a union, and as individuals, we should be supporting local and high street retail through other offers. Even the use of the widely supporting 'Love2Shop' gift cards would be sufficient if local business options aren't available. These options would be far preferred to feeding the online machine.
Thank you for your suggestion.
Following this and other student feedback, we have decided to do exactly that and offer local/ high street vouchers when running student competitions ect. (e.g. https://www.facebook.com/susuvpwelfare/posts/2683570678639462) We're hoping to be able to poll students about which local/high street shop vouchers they prefer.
We will be doing the same internally for staff and will be asking the university if they will follow suit.
