REVISED BRANCH MODEL CONSTITUTION
Please find attached a revised copy of the CWU Branch Model Constituency (BMC).
The revised BMC was approved by the NEC at their meeting held 31st January 2019 and replaces the previous BMC as published in LTB 664/16.
The primary reason for issuing the revised BMC is to incorporate the required changes necessary in respect of Retired Members entitlement to stand for and vote in certain Branch positions such as Branch Treasurer/Financial Secretary and Political Officer. Additionally the BMC has been amended to reflect the CWU policy that Branches should now elect a Retired Members Section Committee and shall ensure that a place on the Branch Committee is reserved for a representative of the Retired Members Section Committee.
At this point in time no other changes have been made to the previously issued BMC.
For ease of reference the changes to be made to the BMC are in red italics.
Branches will be aware that in accordance with the rules of the union that adoption of the BMC approved by the NEC is mandatory and branches should now take steps to amend their BMC at the earliest possible opportunity and to then forward an electronic version to the General Secretary’s Office firstname.lastname@example.org. .
Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to email@example.com.
