Union Procedures & Principles

Union Procedures and Principles are essentially the rules governing how the Union operates on a day-to-day basis (for example, what we sell, when we open, how we support students), and are submitted and passed at Student Council. Whereas Union policy mandates the Union to campaign on an issue, Procedures and Principles are not able to do this and are purely operational.
