Why come to an AGM?

  • Nominate to be on your local sub-branch! Sub-branches are an important part of the HSU. This is where members can come together to plan to build union power at their workplace.
  • Hear reports on union activity over the last year.
  • Nominate to attend the HSU State Conference.

Every department should have at least one delegate they can turn to for support.
