Rule / Policy Changes 2021


At the last National Executive Committee Meeting held over the weekend of 25/26 September 2021, following the Union's receipt of any potential amendments, consideration was given by members of our National Executive Committee to first, any amendments received and then the proposed changes to the Union's Rule Book or matters of policy.

As there were no amendments received, our National Executive Committee moved to consider the proposed changes. All the proposed changes were approved and agreed for implementation by the National Executive Committee.

The implemented rule changes are printed below will become effective from 30 May 2022. 

Your attention is drawn to Rule 13 (6) of our Union's Rule Book, should you object to the below changes.

Whilst all members of our National Executive Committee endorsed the ‘spirit' of the above Policy ‘statement', in doing so our National Executive Committee recognised that other trades union agreed payment structures, like a salary, can be equally beneficial to members within a Branch of our Union. Whilst our National Executive Committee cannot support a ‘long hours' culture within our industry, they do recognise the right of self-determination of members within a Branch, being the very essence of collective bargaining.
