The MU’s committees are formed of democratically elected MU members to represent their interests. Decision making takes place at Conferences and through the actions of the network of union Committees. Nominations for these committees take place in September each year.
The Executive Committee (EC) is the national governing body of the Musicians' Union, making major decisions that affect the working lives of musicians. It deals with many important issues such as industrial negotiations, employment policy and financial management.
Regional Committees (RC) are a crucial part of the day-to-day management of the union at a grassroots level. The MU's six RCs are made up of activist members who help to deal with issues and policy in each region.
