What is Union Parliament?
Union Parliament is the democratic, agenda-setting body of the SU: collectively, you will decide on the policies and matters that mean the most to Beds SU members’, and therefore to Beds SU.
The forum brings elected representatives together to...
- represent the voice of the students;
- identify key needs and wants of the student body that they represent;
- formulate and vote upon policy that establishes the union viewpoint, allowing proposers the opportunity to gather support for their proposal, members to suggest amendments, and to demonstrate their support/opposition for a proposal;
- make, repeal and amend the bylaws jointly with the Trustees on matters of the management of the Union and its working practice (in accordance with the Memorandum and Articles of Association); and
- receive reports, such as from the Executive Officers and Trustees.
