NUIM Student's Union fails to support strike
Thursday November 19, 2009 22:01 by Aidan Rowe
The Student's Union of NUI Maynooth has confirmed, via email correspondence, that they will not be encouraging NUIM students to support the strike on Tuesday. The full text of the email correspondence is presented below.
to Brian [Murphy, SU President]
Just wondering will the SU be asking students not to cross the picket and to join the protests on Tuesday? The USI is supporting the ICTU strikes, so I presume we are as well.
Elizabeth Murray [VP Welfare]
The Students' Union support the students' right to education and to be educated. The university has said that the college will be staying open and we will be still expecting educators to educate.
Sorry Liz, just to be clear, the SU won't be asking students to support the strike (for the reasons you outlined)?
The Students' Union will be remaining neutral on the strike, but as Student reps who want what is best for the students we are standing strong for education, and believe you all should be able to come into college and be educated. On those grounds we will not be 'taking off' Tuesday the 24th. If students wish to support the strike they are more than welcome to make that decision but as we are not part of any union (other than the Students' Union) and for the reasons outlined above we will not be encouraging students to 'strike'. If your lecturers are happy to come in and teach you, we would encourage you to attend.
