Defend Democracy at Maynooth University

Maynooth University Governing Authority (GA) changed its decision on the formation of the next GA - all five of the internal members will be elected by MU staff.

We call on Maynooth University to reverse their decision to instigate selection and to restore the democratic election process for all five staff representatives on the Governing Authority.

Why is this important?

The decision by MU’s Governing Authority and senior management to replace democratic elections with a selection process, whereby they assume, with the assistance of a private recruitment firm, the responsibility of handpicking staff representatives, is an attack on basic principles of democracy and good governance.
