The democratic framework of the Queensland Nurses’ Union is based on its Local Branch structure. Local Branches promote membership participation and two-way communication. They are the ‘building blocks’ of our union.
In consultation with their QNU Organiser, the role of a QNU Local Branch is to:
- provide a democratic forum for members to discuss and debate industrial, professional, democratic, political or social issues
- enable members to determine a position on local issues and grievances in the context of union policy
- organise members to resolve workplace issues
- explain and implement policy on nursing and midwifery issues at a local level
- improve communication between union officials and membersrepresent members in negotiations with
- employers on local issues (in conjunction with the appropriate QNU official)
- co-ordinate union campaigns
- map their workplace regularly and keep this list up to date
- keep an up-to-date list of Activists in the workplace
- participate at the QNU Annual Conference—the union’s key policy making forum.
Matters that have implication beyond the workplace must be referred to QNU officials.
