Fellowship Strategy SGMM

A sign reads "labour rights = human rights"

A sign held at a sit-in at Kaneff Tower underlines the importance of labour rights.

In September, York rolled out its new ‘fellowship’ funding model. The roll-out of this model has been rife with problems, people being underpaid, funds being clawed-back, and a general lack of clarity and communication from York.

Worse still, this model has resulted in the loss of over 600 jobs. This is union-busting, and it requires political organizing. This involves decisions made by the membership as a whole. We will make these decisions together at this Special General Membership Meeting.
