Union Watch: Keeping an eye on student violation

VUWSA: Smells like shit

There’s a funny smell around the VUWSA offices, and it’s not only because of Joel Cosgrove’s reported bad hygiene. Several years back, says VUWSA President Nick Kelly, there was a leak in a pipe travelling through the walls of the offices, which made the rooms smell like sewerage. While this problem was fixed originally, more recently when the wind blows the right way, the smell returns. Attempts to get the Union to fix this problem have so far been unsuccessful.

Pandemic, shamdemic

Students who turned up to receive free flu vaccinations on Tuesday last week were turned away by Union officials who had lost the VUWSA booking. After previously sending VUWSA Welfare Vice President Maddy Drew an email confirming the booking, the Union claimed they had ‘lost’ the booking form. Drew could not confirm how many students were sent away. Furthermore, when they did get their act together, screens and a video player, both requested by Drew, were absent.
