Writing Resolutions and Constitutional Amendments
The NSGEU is a democracy! Every member has the right to have their say and to be heard. So if you have an idea about what the union should do, or just an idea about something that needs to be changed . . . what do you do next? That is what this tutorial is for. . . Resolutions are part of the way that the union demonstrates democracy in action.
Even if you are not able to attend Convention, you can still submit a resolution or constitutional amendment to be considered by the Convention delegates.
You must have an action you want considered connected to your idea and you must provide a rationale (usually in the form of “whereas” to explain why we need the change.)
As an NSGEU member, you belong to a local. Locals are the foundation of the union and play an important part in the democratic processes of the union.
