There are three rule changes that need to be put to a referendum.
The first proposed change deals with Equity’s objects, powers and duties, which if approved will have the effect of updating the rules in relation to harassment and discrimination to recognise the protected characteristics included within equality law; and to include references to bullying and victimisation.
The second proposed change if passed would insert the qualification of being “in benefit” to apply to a member voting in the election of the Equity General Secretary.
The third proposed change clarifies the wording of the different types of majority, which are used to make decisions, in Equity’s Rules.
The Council is urging members to vote “Yes” to all three questions in this referendum.
