depending on when the meeting was, it isn't necessarily the dpgs's fault she was late - transport delays happen. of course, if this was a mid-afternoon meeting then there are questions to be answered, but if it was early in the morning then she's not really to blame.
Interesting question to ask at this juncture, I recieve a CASE award from teh DTi. Part of this goes to Imperial for "extra admin costs". Then some goes to me.
So basicaly I get bumped up to London Weighting and they keep the rest. This works out fairly amicably as CASE is worth something like £5000 a year in total.
Now, if I get Weighting anyway (were I still around), then IC would get the entire CASE award. As it happens, where I work (and there are a few IC students here who will continue), we get naff all admin done for us at all by IC.
So IC will be snaffling a £5000 award from the DTI... anyone dealt with that?
The 360 bus however runs pretty much door-to-door and was working perfectly well.
If you have an important meeting at 10am (the start time given to the union) and know you're likely to be no-confidenced, you should damn well aim to turn up at least an hour early. The tube wasn't so broken it wasn't possible to arrive within 45 minutes of your target time.
Not a case of deliberate laziness, but perhaps a case of more brain power required to consider the gravity of the situation you are in...
Well, no pay rise today - all talk, incompetent action from College admin yet again. In the 22 months I've been here they've now stolen nearly ?1,980 from me by underpaying, despite the fact the research council gives them the full amount.
I wonder if we can get back pay?
