Rules, Policies & Elections

The RTBUWA is governed according to its Rules. A Union’s Rules are essentially its Constitution and preserve the processes that ensure it operates democratically and for its intended purpose – the interests of the members. This includes specifying the manner and terms of election for all offices in the Union.

Alongside the Rules, the Union implements appropriate policies to improve practices and ensure consistent operation.
