The mere mention of the words "General Meeting" make me screem, along with the echos of "order", "can we have some courtesy, please" and "some decorum would be of benefit here, ladies & gentlemen".
sorry, just random rant about some rude individuals at QM who want to use block voting to get their petty political issues as union policy and then simply leave the meeting. No wonder I kept re-ordering the agenda without warning. Love to Susie at ULU for doing a NICE LONG presentation on ULU Transformation to keep the sods in their seets for a TWO AND A HALF HOUR Union General Meeting!
Well, the NUS aren't exactly going to mention who is not a member (I remember the careful wording of all the publicity they sent with UCAS letters, referring to a "vast majority" of Student Unions being members- I actually managed to sign up to their monthly newsletters with just a UCAS number, they didn't tink the issue of non-affiliated Unions was even worth checking).
But there could be such a list, if someone from a non-affiliated Union (anyone know of one of them?) were to compare the list on http://www.nusonline.co.uk/local/default.php against, say, that from the UCAS site (this would also limit the list to Universities and the like, not every College whose Union can affiliate/associate with the NUS).
Slightly long-winded, but straightforward enough. The slightly less simple question is how you would act upon such a list: it would depend on all of their reasons for leaving/ not joining, I suppose.
They'd be better off outsourcing the entire union to another one.
UCLU is the biggest heap of c**p in the universe. I'm only on council because I want to kick up a fuss (Which I have).
Incidentally, an emergency motion to set up a working party to look at reform of UCLU election procedures was stopped from being put to council by the General Secretary (who has now resigned), without passing it through Standing Orders Committee.
If a company or political party was run like UCLU, most of the sabbs would be in prison by now.
