Condem the UKRI response to the PGR open letter, and lobby the university to increase PGR stipends
UKRI recently responded to the open letter from the PGRs against low campaign, which can be found here https://www.ukri.org/publications/pgr-open-letter-response-from-professor-melanie-welham/. This response does nothing to help, and therefore SUSU should condem the response and reitorate demands for incresed stipends. Moreover, SUSU should highlight this issue to university management, and lobby them to support the PGRs against low pay campaign.
Thank you for your submission. Today I am sending an email out to all PGRs with a link to a survey about the Postgraduate experience at Southampton. These responses will directly feed into my discussions with the University about funding, scholarships and bursaries.
I look forward to working on this with you more in September with your new position as a Postgraduate Rep (Congratulations btw!)
