Future structure of UNITE

UNITE's "rules commission" is charged with drawing up the rulebook for the new union, which will be put to a ballot of members by the first Executive Council some time after it takes office in May. I understand that the rules commission has now drafted a proposal for UNITE's industrial sectors (23 of them), and that this will be circulated to branches for consultation. It will be interesting to see whether/how our sector is impacted by this - members should be ready to express their views when the proposal comes out.

In the meantime, the union's web site now contains a helpful "structure" page which brings together the current Amicus section rulebook (updated for 2007-8), the Instrument of Amalgamation and the UNITE General Rules.
