Union Structure

The management of the Unions affairs is conducted on four levels; Referendum, General Meeting, Union Council and Union Executive. All Union meetings will be advertised.



This is the supreme decision making instrument of the Union - motions are put to a vote and all members are entitled to vote.

General Meeting

Union General Meetings take place monthly usually in the College Theatre or IT Building; they give all students an opportunity to air their views and concerns.  Attendance of these meetings is vital to the representational functionality of your Union.

Union Council

The Union Council is made up of all the Class Representatives and the members of the Union Executive. They meet once a fortnight.

Class Reps

It is essential that each class elects a Class Representative. This  person acts as a representative for their class and is their class’s chief spokesperson.  It is important that the person who is elected is committed to the position, not only will they speak for the class but they may also organise class parties and social events. College is not just about studying, it is important that you have an active social life and the Class Rep is there to organise such events so that classmates can form close friendships. At the end of the year each student will have the opportunity to nominate their Class Rep for a Union Council Award. The Union Council Awards recognise outstanding Class Reps for their contribution to their class and the Union as a whole. Each Class Rep will also receive a Certificate of Merit. Officers contact all classes to facilitate the election of class representatives at the beginning of the academic year.

Union Executive

The Union Executive is responsible for the initiation of policy of the Union subject to the approval Union Council, General Meeting and Referendum. It meets weekly.

There are three full-time and three part-time officers in MTU Cork Students’ Union.
