Disability Labour recognises the need for further clarification on disciplinary matters and therefore moves the following amendment and addition to section C(2) of the Constitution with immediate effect:
C (2) Ceasing to be a member.
Members may resign at any time in writing to the secretary.
(2a) The executive committee will contact any member who has not paid their membership fee for one year. They will decide whether that member is deemed to have resigned.
(2b) Any offensive behaviour, including racist, sexist or inflammatory remarks, will not be permitted. Anyone behaving in an offensive way or breaking the equal opportunities statement in this constitution may be asked not to attend further meetings or to resign from the group if an apology is not given or the behaviour is repeated. The individual concerned shall have the right to be heard by the executive committee, accompanied by a friend, before a final decision is made.
