RSU Board of Directors member resigns, says union lacks transparency and accountability

ANG-GREG

Ryersonian TV will speak with Angelyn Francis today, the RSU board member who resigned yesterday. Watch LIVE at noon.

A member of the Board of Directors of the Ryerson Students’ Union has resigned over what she says are failures by the board and the RSU executive to act in an open and accountable way.

In a Facebook post Tuesday night, Angelyn Francis said she stepped down because she believes the RSU lacks “transparency and accountability.”

“I am resigning from the Ryerson Students’ Union Board of Directors because I believe that the current executive team, along with board members have stayed largely silent on many issues that concern students and their money and have acted in a way that contradicts their stated goals of transparency and accountability,” she writes.

The resignation comes after the RSU’s firing of Dina Skvirsky and Gilary Massa in December.

In her Facebook post, Francis, who was the campus groups director on the board, also alleges the RSU is not being honest about its finances.

“The reality is (and this is supported by a presentation made to the board by the current VP Operations Obaid Ullah) that the RSU is in a good financial position,” she says in her post.
