Following Guilds? disasterous and highly embarrassing exit from the Lord Mayor?s Show and while negotiations to attempt to secure re-entry to the show are still on-going, ex-Lord Mayor?s Show Coordinator Sanjeev Sarda will face a motion of No Confidence in his position as C&G Welfare Officer.
A motion of no confidence is a formal Union disciplinary motion to dismiss an officer or representative from their position. Under C&G regulations it requires a proposer and ten seconders and, in the case of Union Officers, is presented to the Executive Committee ? a body comprising the central C&G officers including President, Vice-Presidents and the chair of each Departmental Society Committee. This motion will be considered by the Executive Committee meeting on Monday 11th October at 1pm.
The motion is proposed by C&G Union President John Collins. Live! has learnt that an emergency meeting of the C&G Management Committee on Sunday night opted unanimously to recommend the motion to the Executive. The motion alleges that Mr Sarda misled the President about the status of the Union?s Lord Mayors? Show entry and ?demonstrated that he is unreliable, incompetent and dishonest and hence unfit to be a Union Officer?. The motion also alleges that, through the manner of his resignation as Lord Mayors? Show Coordinator, Mr Sarda had ?shown no remorse and made no attempt to apologise for his shortcomings?.
Two thirds of those present and voting at the meeting must vote for a motion of no confidence in order for it to pass.
