Our model policies and policy checklists are designed to assist NEU reps in negotiating the best employment policies on behalf of their members.
Reps should strive to ensure policies are compliant with the NEU models.
Reps should consult members before agreeing new policies or changes to existing policies and should not agree policies that do not meet member expectations, any statutory requirements and NEU minimums.
Policy checklists should be used in conjunction with our model policies and can be used as a guide for reps when communicating with members over whether a proposed policy is acceptable.
If a policy is unacceptable members should consider a collective response which may include taking industrial action. For further advice contact your NEU branch.
