Today, DNU blocked the entrance to the Maagdenhuis to support the rights of UvA flex-workers and oppose their impending redundancy. The action came as a surprise to ReThink UvA. Nonetheless, today’s action highlights the tension between longterm ongoing institutional processes within the university, and urgent problems that require immediate response. ReThink UvA supports UvA flex-workers’ struggle for a good working environment and calls upon the University’s Executive Board to address them collegially and with respect for the letter and the spirit of the law. At the same time, ReThink UvA remains strongly committed to the hard and ongoing work of setting up the two committees, and calls upon the Executive Board to refrain from using these actions as a pretext for casting doubt on the process of the establishment of the two committees.
