Hi Jamie

Thanks for your message.  I can understand why members could be concerned.  At this point there are no terms of reference for the process as the decision to proceed was taken less than two weeks ago. Once determined, I will be happy to share terms of reference with UNIFOR and ultimately with all staff.  As I understand the decision of the Board of Directors, the exercise will look at how the Institute uses its revenues overall.  In other words both member services (largely delivered and supported by staff) and member participation (constituent bodies, training, consultation, etc) will be reviewed.  I am hopeful that the end result will be a strengthened organization delivering highly-valued services which encourages active participation by members.

Once we are a little more certain of the framework for the exercise, but before any activity begins, I would suggest that a Joint Union/Management Consultation meeting would be a good forum for a more comprehensive discussion.  In the meantime, please feel free to share this message with your members if you so choose.

I have heard a lot of concern regarding the value for money audit. Most people think it is a way to cut jobs if people can't justify their job. A statement from management clarifying that it will be evaluating the value of all expenses of the organization including member events, and not just targeted at staff would be helpful.
