Amendment D16

21 06 2007

Amendment D16 was proposed by us to resist the Executive Council’s decision to remove your death in service benefit. Frankly, their arguments were never convincing since they argued that many members over the age of sixty would continue to be fully-paid members, in work and would die in service, costing the union thousands. They never presented any research or actuarial evidence to support their opinion, so our members have lost a significant benefit because the EC is guessing.

The amendment was lost, and the Death Benefit will now be withdrawn.

If you object to the loss of this benefit then please write, ring or email Head Office. If you leave the union because of this then please let the union know why!
