Samuele Glendenning
As President, I aim to make the Labour society an engaging place for students who are inspired by Labour values and want to get involved in politics. Covid-19 has made this a difficult year for the society and I aim to make 2021/2022 more successful. These are my proposals:
1. More socials: let’s be honest, talking over WhatsApp has not been great! The best way to build a cohesive society is through socials – after all, the home of healthy political debate is the pub. Whatever your political views, I want you to enjoy getting to grips with interesting arguments and making friends in the society.

2. More talks and events: let’s invite MPs and political commentators from the across the left to speak at UCL. I am planning to reach out to Kings and LSE Labour societies to work together to organise joint events which will attract more impressive speakers.

3. Engagement with Labour and UCL student campaigns: the society should be actively involved in elections and student issues. Let’s get together to help with door knocking and phone banking.
Oliver Tucker
I'm a Labour town councillor and county council candidate - over the last several years, I've been online, via social media and on the doorstep in the Tory safe seat I live in (its character-building!). I'm the Trade Union Liaison Officer for my CLP and understand the importance of organising in the workplace, which is why I'm a member of GMB and previously Unite.

I'm thrilled that in-person campaigning is back from March 8th: the connection you build between local activists is unparalleled by anything we can do online. I look forward to getting back on the doorstep and bringing this enthusiasm for campaigning into UCL's Labour Society. I believe that our society should be an integrated campaigning unit with London Labour and university Labour societies, working for the benefit of fantastic Labour candidates and socialist causes.

But this is only one part of the society I believe we should be. I want UCL to be both a safe space for socialist debate and education, as well as a social hub constituted by all kinds of people from across UCL, whether you are an undergraduate, masters student or PhD candidate.

Through our collective interest and passion for the Labour movement, we find ourselves drawn together. It is now time to direct that energy and passion towards real, concrete change.
Aliy Faisal
I’m a trade unionist and I’ve been a member of the Labour Party for 6 years - in that time I’ve campaigned in numerous elections around the country and currently I’m the BAME Officer for Lewisham Deptford Young Labour and a delegate to my CLP. I’m a 2nd year PPE student and have also written for our student paper about the campaign to bring UCL workers back in-house. As Treasurer during the past difficult and unusual year I have tried to carry out my role as best I could with the responsibilities and access to organising resources I had. I am running to increase the number and range of activities that we do, as well as maintain the inclusive, broad-church nature of our Labour club.

We will work to be an engaging society by holding events such as speeches from MPs, authors and journalists, as well as social events and film screenings. We will also utilise email and social media to stay connected with members and students.

UCL is situated near multiple trade unions and there are frequently picket lines in the area - I will reach out to them so we can support their campaigns and have representatives to speak to us. We will also explore the capacity for the SU to routinely enrol their student employees in trade unions, as has been achieved in Durham and Aston.

Having been an active member in Holborn and St Pancras, I will be able to get our members out on doorsteps in the local area for regular canvassing sessions.
