Proposed amendment to Union NatWest boycott

An amendment to the Union of UEA Student’s (UUEAS) Ethical Banking Motion will be proposed at Union Council on the 24 January.

Put forward by Rhiannon Mohabir of UEA Korfball Club and seconded by Non-Portfolio officer Abbi Forsyth, the proposed amendment states that “the Union will no longer bank with RBS-NatWest, but the Union and its clubs and societies can still partake in events sponsored by RBS NatWest, including competitions such as RBS ESSA.”

If the motion passes, students will be able to watch the RBS Six Nations Rugby in the bar when it begins in February, and apply for extra ESSA funding for clubs.

Check out this in-depth explanation of the boycott and the Union’s decision.
