Branch standards 

The Unite Executive Council has agreed on a policy on branch standards which is available below. This sets out the standards which will be used to define an active Unite branch.

The Executive Council has also agreed on a set of model standing orders for branches as required by rule. Branches may adopt these to fit their own particular circumstances.
