Saturday 11th June – meet at 10am Clock Tower
We are sorry that MAIS and the Free University are still going to be using the Synergy Centre for their event this Saturday. We understand they have had problems finding an alternative suitable venue.
However the Synergy Centre has only recently come into existence. Before it opened, groups and campaigns found venues to hold their events where deliberate use of unpaid labour was not an issue. Or where the issue was speedily resolved when it was brought to the attention of the venue management, as happened with the Brighthelm.
The Synergy Centre is unrepentent about its involvement with Seetec and the Community Work Placement scheme, and sticks by the anti-claimant rhetoric of its website. We will continue to encourage all other left and anti-austerity groups to boycott the Synergy Centre until this situation is resolved.
