Defense Committee

The Defense Committee is a group of Union members who work to “provide for the general defense“: to support a committed Union membership in fighting for the fair and equitable treatment of both students, and members of our wider community. We do this by:
  1. Organizing events and direct actions to build community amongst Union members and strengthen our position as a Union.
  2. Collaborating with other Unions and local groups, assisting with their struggles and building a strong relationship between our organizations and members.
  3. Helping members learn about unionism, your rights, and ways you can get involved.
We are elected by our fellow students and are committed to being fully participatory: we welcome anyone at our meetings or events, and are always looking for more people to get involved! If you want to keep up to date on our activities, including upcoming meetings, please email and check out the calendar.


If you want to volunteer, have questions about our work, or have ideas for things we should be doing, please get in touch at
