Here is the agenda for the final discussions on the constitution and rules/objects for Socialist Forum INC.
At the meeting pages and pages like this one were completed by members.
There were mail-in forms - nothing was left to chance.
Leadership positions were formally nominated and approved with minuted records.
And this extract from Victoria's Consumer Affairs Department can be taken as a certificate to prove that the Association was indeed incorporated.
You may wish to jump ahead and quickly check the AWU WRA Ms Gillard set up for Bruce. You'll find a big difference from the Rules/Constitution of the Socialist Forum and the AWU-WRA. Which is funny, because Ms Gillard told her boss that she based the AWU WRA on the Socialist Forum rules.
But we're not going to deal with the AWU WRA next. We'll be looking at another Workplace Reform Association. It was a Workplace Reform Association that really did things - things like hosting a conference in Melbourne attended by 722 delegates, including Prime Minister Hawke.
Fortunately for us, the conference proceedings have been preserved in this 300 odd page book!
We'll look at who was involved with that first Workplace Reform Association soon.
