Save the Union

The EGM of Queens Union Club (QUC) occurred today in the Student’s Union.

As a member of QUC I was shocked that the membership of QUC was being asked to dissolve the club. The more startling thing was that no explanation was given as to why certain elements in the University wanted the club dissolved however a few of us have our suspicions. We were told that the assets of QUC i.e. Bar profits had been given over to the University but could not be told by whom and when exactly.

Serious questions must be asked of the University top brass and indeed previous Presidents of the Student's Union.

Legal advice is currently been sought to see how best to resolve the issue and to see were the previous actions illegal.

I would call on all students to support this campaign to uphold the integrity and independence of the Student’s Union.

What other Student’s Union is run by the University?

The fight is on and we are going for the jugular, stay tuned for more info and anyone interested in the campaign can contact the Deputy President at the Students Union or on 02890971068
