Rules of the Union
The Rules of the Financial Services Union were updated and amended at our delegate conference in 2016.
This was an important conference which saw the union democratically adopt a new set of rules, a new name and a new strategic approach so that we can better represent staff in the rapidly changing financial services sector.
The rules of the Union set out our aims and ambitions, including:
- To protect and improve salaries, pensions and conditions of employment
- To provide support in cases of unfair treatment by employers
- To ensure that the working environment is as safe and secure as possible
- To promote the education and development of union members
The document then sets out the democratic structure adopted to achieve these aims and ambitions.
It also details the procedures for balloting on industrial action
The document also defines structures for both retired workers and young workers - two groups that the union is determined to represent.
If you are involved in the union or considering joining the rules of the union are worth reading.
