Megan Dunn has been elected NUS National President, with the vote count being:
413 – Megan Dunn
202 – Beth Redmond
79 – RON (Re-open nominations)
Speaking to conference floor in her election speech, Megan said: “Whatever government is in power after next month’s election, it won’t be easy, so we have to be ready to stand up alongside each other and say enough is enough. We need action in union meetings, university boardrooms and in parliament.
“I want to put more effort into supporting campus unions, and transforming our national movement to support the work that you do.
“I’m really proud to have been given this opportunity to build a movement around a vision for apprentices not just with a rise in the minimum wage but with a living wage. The end of the false choice between further education and higher education – with the focus on how someone wants to learn and what they want to study rather than what they can afford or what they are told is worthwhile.”
