The Guild should continue to be affiliated to the National Union of Students

The cases for and against the motion are supplied by student campaign team leaders, and represent their views on why students should vote FOR or AGAINST. Students may also register a vote, but ABSTAIN to remain neutral.

A vote FOR shows that you think the Guild should remain affiliated to the National Union of Students.

A vote AGAINST shows that you think the Guild should disaffiliate from the National Union of Students, following a timeline as prescribed in our terms of affiliation; expected to be December 2019.

Voting will be open from 9am, Tuesday 28 May 2019 until 4pm, Thursday 30 May 2019. The number of voters required for a quorate result is 1,187 - in the event that fewer than 1,187 students vote the result will not be counted.
