Yesterday on the 23rd of February, the union parliament (RK) had its second meeting of the year. The meeting back in its physical form at the Astronomy building with lots of fika. Firstly, the union presidium reported to RK about their work. The next matter was the by-elections, where Gertrud Wrange was elected as the new Gender and Equality Committee spokesperson for the remainder of the semester!
Next, the RK representatives discussed the offered sponsorship of a social media post from Vattenfall. The question was whether it is acceptable or not to accept a sponsorship from this company when taking sustainability issues in to account. RK concluded that while the matter is complicated, such a sponsorship would be acceptable and could benefit the union if the offer was reasonable.
The next matter was a decision about the updates to the Guideline for Information Channels. RK thought that the changes made to the document since last time were satisfactory, and decided to approve of the updates. The guideline now inludes a section on the union’s canvas pages! Before the break, RK also approved of a board decision to elect the union president to a working group within the Faculty Education Board.
Finally, the RK started discussing what matters to include in the next operational plan for the operational year 2022/23.
The next RK meeting will be held on the 23rd of March.
