As individuals, we can be ignored. To have an impact, you need to connect with like minded people. The following are good places to discuss the issue of reform:
- Our ALP
- Local Labor members supporting the Faulkner/Bracks/Carr reforms (Victoria, mostly)
- Local Labor NSW (NSW)
- We endorse the 2010 National Review and demand it be implemented in full (NSW, mostly)
Lobby for Change
- your branch
- your branch executive, especially delegates to FEC and SEC (FEA and SEA in Victoria)
- your FEC and SEC
- your FEC and SEC executive, especially delegates to Conference
- your Union, if it is affiliated
- anyone on the Admin Committee
- anyone on the Rules Committee
- your local Labor MPs (Federal, NSW, Vic)
Motions at Conference are good. They put the topic on the agenda.
For the rules to change, for pro-reform motions to pass, we need delegates at Conference, and we need reform minded people on the right committees.
To get delegates at Conference, we need reform minded people on SECs and FECs and on the executives of SECs and FECs, and affiliated unions.
To get reform minded people on the executives of SECs and FECs,we need pro-reform people on the executive of your local branch.
Can you help us with that? If you are in NSW, your next branch AGM is probably in March.
