A translation from FN
The alert circulates on social networks. There are cleaners at the University of Madeira who have not been paid for four months and there are no immediate prospects for solving the problem.
The matter has also been disclosed in the media and the solution is delaying. The cleaning staff remain present at the institution to avoid dismissal, but whoever has been part of the work is the maintenance staff that does not even double the amount.
All indications are that UMa’s budgetary difficulties may be at the root of this problem, as discussed in academic circles. Everything is being handled for its resolution but it is not immediate.
Some students also share the problem on social networks and find it disgusting that, although they pay € 1060 a year in tuition fees, the cleaning conditions are not always guaranteed. Also, if they do not pay a month’s tuition, they are then forced to pay with interest.
