Tuesday 27 November 2018 NUS News

An NUS-USI membership affiliation referendum took place at Ulster University Students’ Union from 13 to 15 November.

NUS-USI gained a massive 90.2% mandate in the vote. This result means that UUSU will remain affiliated to NUS-USI.

NUS-USI President, Olivia Potter Hughes said: “This is a fantastic result and I am delighted that UUSU has decided to remain affiliated to NUS-USI. We are extremely happy to keep 100% membership across students’ unions here and we look forward to continuing to work closely together with UUSU.

“NUS-USI ran positive referendum campaign based on the importance of the collective student voice in delivering the priorities of students here. NUS-USI has a proud track record of delivery and of working together with students’ unions across Northern Ireland, and across these islands with NUS and USI, as part of our trilateral agreement.

“I also want to take this opportunity to thank all campaigners who worked with NUS-USI to deliver this excellent result.”
