I am writing concerning the recent accident with a doorknob.
The Green Action Society plays an important role in the Union, providing students, staff and other members of the public with affordable ethical food. The co-operative relies on volunteers and makes no profit as we sell all our products at cost price.
The damage to the doorknob was caused by accident when volunteers were transporting vegetable boxes to the co-op, a physically demanding job. The society feels unsupported by the Union in being asked to pay the full replacement cost. Green Action would urge you to reconsider the implications of making us pay this money as it was not an act of maliciousness but an accident that only happened in the course of providing a much-valued service to the Union. We feel that finding the money for this would greatly impede the work we do in the union and prevent us moving forward as a society.
