Students will get the chance to change things at the Students' Union in two referenda later this month.
The referenda will ask students 'Should the Students' Union adopt the Cheaper and Easier Travel to Campus policy?' and 'Should the campus Co-op have more student-friendly prices?'
The Cheaper and Easier Travel to Campus policy is being put to students following a vote in Union Council and would mandate the Students' Union and the elected Officer team to take specific action and to lobby relevant organisations to make travel to campus cheaper and easier for students.
Following a student petition, students will have the chance to vote on whether the Union should be mandated to lobby the University and the Cooperative to lower prices at the campus Co-op.
If you wish to campaign for or against either of these proposals, please email email@example.com before 12pm on Friday 17th November. This allows you to write an argument supporting your viewpoint which will be published as part of the referenda and the option to use Union-funded publicity materials to try to persuade students to vote to support your viewpoint.
