Lincoln College MCR has voted to disaffiliate from OUSU.

A motion was presented at the General Meeting on the 23rd of November, and the MCR voted to disaffiliate with immediate effect.

Several reasons were given for the disaffiliation, “The financial aspect of OUSU is probably the most worrying, considering the lack of transparency in OSSL and the massive loss presented at the end of last year,” read a letter from the MCR to OUSU.

The letter further suggested that the salaries of the Sabbatical officers “should be reconsidered”.

The MCR noted “the importance of OUSU’s role in representing the students toward the University and that the current OUSU sabbatical team is taking steps in the right direction.”

Lincoln MCR expressed a hope that they would be able to reconsider their position towards OUSU in the future.
