Stop the sell out of the VU University Amsterdam: Petition ONLINE
We, your colleagues at the VU University Amsterdam, need your help. We seek international solidarity to stop our Executive Board from implementing a Strategic Plan based on a strict business model that has recently been rejected by the VU University’s Works Council and the Trade Unions. This plan aims at changing our university into a commercial knowledge industry.
Support us in our demands to the Executive Board of the VU University Amsterdam:
1. The primary motivation for change must at all times be to enhance the quality of education and research and must have priority over minimizing costs.
2. Stop the current budgetary measures until reasonable negotiations have been resumed with the Works Council and the Trade Unions.
3. Reorganization may not lead to redundancy of professional staff.
4. Return control of the university to the scientific and support staff.
