La Trobe Student Union would like to address any concerns over the recent investigation by 60 Minutes and The Age into allegations against misconduct in the Victorian Labor Party.
This investigation contained surveillance footage of previous LTSU presidents. Allegations made in the report against the Victorian Labor Party are being investigated by Victoria Police and anti-corruption watchdog IBA. The LTSU is not involved in the actions of previous presidents and what they choose to do in their personal time.
La Trobe Student Union condemns the violent, misogynistic and derogatory language that was captured in the 60 Minutes report. Those views have no place within our organization and we stand with those affected by the comments made.
If you have been impacted by the report, we encourage students to check in with La Trobe’s support services.
