Special General Meeting – Friday 7 September 2012

The Union’s State Committee of Management has resolved to call a Special General Meeting at 10am on Friday 7 September 2012 at the Union Office at 1-7 Belmore Street, Surry Hills with the final vote on each question to be declared pursuant to Rule 11(4)(d) at midday on Wednesday 12 September at City of Sydney Fire Station, Castlereagh Street, Sydney.

The timing and location of most Sub-Branch meetings (Sydney (x7), Central Coast, Newcastle and Illawarra) will be determined by each Sub-Branch Executive Committee and notified separately, shortly. The Senior Officers’ Sub-Branch Secretary has advised that the SOSB will not be meeting separately and as such, SOSB members are encouraged to attend the SGM or a convenient other Sub-Branch meeting.

Retained and Country Sub-Branch members may meet locally at any time between 1800 hrs on Monday 3 September and 1000 hrs on Wednesday 12 September provided that:

a)    there will be at least seven financial Union members present throughout the course of the local meeting; and

b)    at least 24 hours written notice of intention to hold a local meeting together with the proposed time, date and location is received by the Union office by no later than 0900 hrs on Friday 7 September.
