[All-societies] Recent email regarding K2

Good evening people, just writing to clear up an issue which has been
brought to my attention.


I have been informed that you may have received an email from a student sent
on Monday 15th claiming, amongst other things that K2 is closing, that all
sorts of terrible things are about to befall societies and the Union is on
its arse for cash.


As I am sure you are aware K2 is currently fully functioning. The email I
refer to notes that it would be ultra vires of (above and beyond the powers
of) the Union to not consult with the student body on any issues regarding
the change, opening or closing of a service, such as K2. If a union service
were to close this would not be the case. Whilst we would strive to consult
the student body on any matters we possibly can we would not be able to
comment on matters involving staff contracts. This would be illegal and
leave the Sabbatical Officers (as Trustees) and the Union open to being
sued. In addition, if K2 where to close there are more than adequate and
efficient alternatives for societies to use.


On the point of finances I am afraid the student concerned is not in full
possession of the facts, nor is he an accountant (the Unions accountants
being more than happy with the state of our finances). If you wish to get
the facts regarding our finances please feel free to pop and see me anytime.


One more reminder for the SGM tomorrow (which I'm afraid has moved to
Glyndwr D due to more booking cock-ups) at 6.00pm!


Much love

Nick Cooper
