Students and staff at University College Dublin will hold a Valentine’s Day-themed protest to demand “urgent action” on a number of issues including the high costs of student accommodation. The UCD Students’ Union announced it was calling a demonstration in order to escalate a number of “core” student issues that they say require “urgent addressing by management”. The union has also gained the support of the trade unions that represent staff on campus in UCD including Siptu, IFUT and Unite. The protest will take place on campus on Monday, February 14 at midday. The union has called for “urgent action” from management on “sky high” rents in on-campus student accommodation, the protection of vital student support services, the “ongoing exploitation” of postgraduate workers and the “prevailing of corporate interests over staff and students”.

Deputy general secretary of IFUT said the union supports the UCD students’ union protest. Miriam Hamilton said: “Precarious, casual, hourly paid and low paid employment feature in all universities and UCD is no exception.” “The impact on the individual can be devastating including financial stresses, insecurity and mental health impacts. "The impact on the university teaching and research can too be negative as a conveyor belt of precarious staff on short contracts concerned about their future is not conducive to driving research and innovation."
