Principles and Procedures.
is open to members at meetings, the accounts, the minutes book and our
foundation statement, quoted in part below:
objects of the Union:
Through joint representation and co-operation, to get members their
correct entitlement and all the benefits to which they are entitled.
To stop harassment by state or local government departments.
One or two people can't do the work of a Claimants Union.
Everyone has to do their share.
For this reason subscriptions shall be kept as low as possible;
members activity being sought rather than their money.
Union must be united. Anyone
attempting to divide members along lines of race, colour or sex (or
attempting to stir up trouble along these lines) shall be excluded.
business shall be dealt with first. Other
considerations, like the possible affiliation of the union to other bodies,
shall be dealt with at the end of the meeting.
So much for the rules & principles ;
the fight for our rights goes on.
As the man said:
"Almost anything bad you can think of, poor people have more of it. More illness, more accidents, more crime, fewer opportunities for their children and the most fantastically expensive credit."
(Steve Nickell, Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee,
President's address to the Royal Economic Society. 2004.)
