What is Union Council?
What does it do?
Why should I care?
These are all questions that I hope this blog will answer, in time.
If your a student at the University of Warwick then you'll probably also be a member of the Student's Union, which means that's it's rules and regulations govern you and what you can do in the Union's buildings. Union council is one of the main policy making bodies of the Union (notable others being referenda and the Constitution) and is an appropriate place to discuss most of the issues facing the Union today. Say you want to ask one of the sabbatical officers (e.g. president) about something they are doing or not doing, then you can ask them at Union council! That's one of council's duties, to keep the sabbatical officers in check, not to mention all the other democratic bodies of the Union.
You don't even need to be a Union councillor to attend, any full member of the Union can turn up and observe, and if you get permission, speak.
Hopefully in time, we'll get some Councillors to write on this blog, and you can find out what happens at Union Council!
But you should note, this blog is entirely unofficial, it isn't endorsed by the Student's Union in any way, and as such shouldn't be taken as the definitive source of Council related information.
