TODDLERS took to the streets with their mums yesterday in a last-ditch protest aimed at keeping their university nursery open.
Plans are in the pipeline to shut the nursery at the University of the West of Scotland’s Paisley campus.
And, just an hour before members of the governing university court met to make a final decision, parents appealed to them to show some compassion.
John Gallacher, regional organiser for the staff’s UNISON union, said: “There are 30 staff across both campuses. And if the decision to close the facilities is confirmed these people will be made redundant, and it will be compulsory.
“If this happens these will be the first compulsory redundancies in the history of the UWS – and it would be a dark day.”
