ON MONDAY 30 JANUARY 13 motions were proposed at the UGM. All of these failed to meet the threshold of numbers needed to ratify them as YUSU policy, with the exception of the motion regarding Portering. Topics included ending the lack of ‘real’ abortion on demand, proposed by Women’s Officer Erin McAlister, the scrapping of Top-up Fees, proposed by Grace Fletcher-Hall, and the ending of discrimination based on age, race, gender or sexuality when donating blood, again proposed by Grace Fletcher-Hall. These stances on emotive issues have failed to become YUSU policy due to a lack of the required turnout, calling into question the validity of UGM meetings.
UGM motions fail again
