Recognition of the Branch Disability Officer Role

Back to all Motions

2013 National Disabled Members' Conference
4 July 2013

A few years ago the position of Branch Welfare Officer became a rule book position due to the necessity of that role.

With the amendment of Rule D.4.2 carried at National Delegate Conference 2013 we believe the role of the Branch Disability Officer has changed and thus the role will become more pro-active within the general union.

To enable the role to fit in the new structure as created by the rule amendment Rule D.4.2, this Conference asks that National Disabled Members Committee consider the possibility of putting a rule amendment to National Delegate Conference as soon as possible to recognise the role of Branch Disability Officer as a rule book position.
