    Glyndwr University over the last year has made some staff members redundant. This week further staff are being informed what the future holds for them. The staff has been told that some pay grades are being lowered, and further redundancies are being made. It seems strange that despite the consequences of the restructuring nothing has appeared in the local media, instead we only ever see ‘good news’ stories churned out by the University’s media department. Is it not time the issues at the University were made transparent as it affects both local people and the local economy?

    If the numbers on some courses are low or no uptake then you cant expect the University to keep staff. All Universities will from time to time refresh the types of courses they run- businesses and potential employers needs will change and so the training has to be different.

    Should we not be celebrating the good news fully.

    I would feel sorry for anyone that loses a job but should we get all businesses that are reducing their staff for whatever reason to make sure they always get public approval through the media. This is an internal matter for the management and staff of Glyndwr (or any business) to deal with.

    Ah but who funds Glyndwr University ? private business’s that reduce staff are a different proposition altogether.

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    So are you saying Glyndwr should not operate in a business-like manner — surely they have an income that can only go so far so they need to maximise their resources – financial and human to be able to deliver the best quality Education to strict more students. More students equals more income equals more jobs
