Election Rule Changes

20 06 2007

Wednesday 20th June

A debate on changes to amend rules as proposed by the Executive Council.

A lot of opposition to the proposed changes as conference mostly on the grounds of reducing accountability and democracy.

Rule changes carried – this means that the outgoing Executive Council cannot be challenged at the Biennial Conference (as it will be elected before the conference takes place) and that the President is no longer going to face election by popular mandate.

We are not happy with this decision, which is anti-democratic and suggests that the Executive Council holds the membership of the union in contempt.

Let us know what you think!
