National Petition

Local Labor is looking for support from Branch members around Australia
to support the following petition intended to put some pressure on the
delegates to National Conference to vote for change and reform of our
party structures.

Please take it to your next branch meeting and ask for members support.
Experience suggests it will get strong enthusiasm. The objective is to
send a strong message to party leaders and National Conference delegates
that they need to vote for change to help the process of rebuilding ALP
support in the community.

The objective is to get completed petitions returned to Race Mathews at
the email address below by the end of September.


• Implement the National Review reforms
• Give members a stronger voice
• Uphold Labor values in policy
• Connect with local communities

We the undersigned ALP members urge all elements of the Party to support
urgent reform to achieve the reform objectives spelt out in the 2010 ALP
National Review conducted by John Faulkner, Steve Bracks and Bob Carr.

In particular we want action to reform voting to increase the say of
local members, expand the membership of the party, reform the policy
development processes and resource the recommended community-organising

The Party should aim to empower and equip members to work in their local
communities on campaigns, to build stronger community connections and to
recruit new members and get former members to rejoin. This should be
achieved by providing training to boost the skills, awareness and
knowledge of members to allow them to better participate in
party-building and recruitment activities.
