Preface

This book contains the current Rules of the NZ Amalgamated Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union Incorporated.

These Rules are current as at 4 April 2013.

The strength and effectiveness of this Union continues to depend entirely on the active involvement of its membership.

These Rules aim to provide a structure of decision making and accountability which protects the democratic rights of our members and allows for full participation at all levels of the organisation.

Our Rules will continue to be subject to careful scrutiny to ensure that they are in step with the needs of the Union and its members.
