As you should already be aware, we are proposing a motion regarding long-term unpaid internships at the UGM. You can view the full proposal here in order to prepare yourself for the vote on the night. Feel free to post any comments or questions below and share your thoughts on the appropriate length for unpaid internships on our discussion post. Don’t forget, you can also get involved in the discussion on Twitter too (follow us at @FXUtweet and use the hashtag #fxuUGM).
For more information on how the debate is building nationally, check out the following links:
- NUS have a guide on how to lobby your local MP and the legalities of interships
- Rights for Interns and Intern Aware want you to know your rights
- Watch Hazel Blears talking about the ban on adverts for long-term internships in Parliament
If you feel strongly about it, make sure you’re there on the night to vote!
