GPUS Steering Committee eliminated and restructured staff positions. This proposal is intended to allow member States and Caucuses, as well as staff, full participation in the decision making process.


The National Committee of the Green Party of the United States stands strongly behind worker's rights and union rights. The IWW Union was announced during the 2017 Annual National Meeting to the assembled Delegates and formally recognized by the Steering Committee of the Green Party of the United States. The Steering Committee of the Green Party of the United States shall immediately halt any further restructuring actions including position eliminations or duty reassignments of GPUS employees and contractors. This halt applies to any and all further restructuring, lay-offs, terminations, position eliminations, and any significant duty reassignments.

This halt shall continue until such time as the National Committee:
a. has been fully consulted on any planned actions by the Steering Committee,
b. has been fully informed of any and all negotiations with the GPUS employee union, and
c. lifts this halt though a majority vote in the affirmative.


Immediate upon passage.


Union - Industrial Workers of the World.

Restructuring - reorganization of our Party with a view to achieving greater efficiency and profit, or to adapt to a changing market.

Significant Duty Assignments - significant changes to the day to day duties of our employees that are not defined in their job descriptions.

Full Consultation of NC - a proposal is submitted to the NC prior to changes being implemented, so that member states can participate in the consensus process as specified in our Bylaws, either through deliberation or voting on the changes proposed by the SC.

Any planned action - when the SC has passed internal proposals to change National Bylaws, Working Committees, Rules and/or Procedures they must inform the National Committee, for discussion and vote, before implementing changes. This does not apply to internal procedures which the SC is permitted to change, after which the NC must be notified.

Fully Informed - a discussion is initiated with the members of the Party on the voting list prior to the SC taking action so that member states are aware of what is happening and can participate in the consensus process as specified in our Bylaws.
