Re: Proposed COMCIFS terms of reference

David: I have looked at the proposed changes to COMCIFS brief,
at at Herbert's suggested amendments, and am happy with all of
them. I am ambivalent on the inclusion or exclusion of I.8 ...
I suggest that the union get advice on this requirement, but
whether it needs to appear in the COMCIFS statutes seems to be
an entirely different matter.
Cheers
Syd
