5. Committee coordination
AAWL proposes a three person coordination team to be established, to be responsible for coordinating invites, maintaining a membership contact list, website updates and conducting online meetings.
The coordination team should have no other responsibilities.
It is not an executive and may not speak on behalf of the Global Picketline International Committee.
There will be no membership or affiliation fees. The Global Picketline International Committee will not maintain bank accounts or have any role in collecting, managing or distributing finances. All costs and expenses will be voluntarily covered by member organisations. Any solidarity financial assistance by a member organisation to any group of workers will be managed directly by the comrades involved.
The Global Picketline International Committee will hold monthly online meetings. Quorum will be three members. Meetings will be chaired by a member chosen by those participating in the online meeting. Online meetings will run for a maximum of two hours.
Members of the Global Picketline International Committee may invite workers involved in disputes that are being discussed to attend that particular meeting.

A Global Picketline International Committee meeting will have a standard agenda:
Item 1 will be consideration of motions to launch a Global Picketline campaign.
