Complainant Name:
Mr Alan Gardner

Clauses Noted: 1, 2

Publication: London Student


Mr Alan Gardner complained on behalf of University College Londons Student Union that an article had inaccurately claimed that Mike McLeod the Unions General Manager had broken the terms of a new pay deal by including it in plans to restructure UCL Unions shops and cafes. In fact, the complainant contended that Mr McLeod had not used the HERA pay framework at any point during the Unions restructuring.


The newspaper stood by the accuracy of the article, but as a compromise offered to remove the article from its website and publish a statement by Mr McLeod setting out his position. The complainant agreed to the removal of the article as an acceptable compromise, resolving the complaint.

Report: 73
