Leeds students vote no to scabbing on lecturers

Students at Leeds University have voted down a student union referendum on the following:
“Should LUU oppose industrial action on campus that negatively impacts on the education of students?”
– in other words, should it scab on lecturers?

The vote was 891 to 717. A Leeds student activists commented:

“I’m very happy that Leeds students voted to defend their own interests and those of staff, and didn’t violate the principle of unions by opposing another union.
“To LUU, I’d say that any move to oppose strike action would be against the interests and the wishes of your members.”
