It would be much more convenient for students to have amazon lockers at the SU as we are often not at home to receive parcels and I'm also aware that other universities have such a facility. I'm aware that the idea of an Amazon locker at the Ridge was discussed at the Council meeting on 29th Dec where the Education Officer clarified that the SU has no jurisdiction over the facilities at the Ridge. However, I am proposing that this locker is set up at the SU itself.
While this would be convenient, it would also encourage students to buy things from amazon rather than other retailers due to the increased convenience. Amazon avoid paying corporation tax, provide poor conditions for workers and are worsening consumer and worker welfare by monopolizing the retail market.
