Nautilus International's General Meetings are usually held every four years.
Nautilus International strives to be a transparent and well governed organisation, with policies and regulations readily available to members.

This section contains Nautilus policies, rules and regulations relating to the conduct of the Union and its members. Members should address any queries about these to the general secretary via Nautilus head office.

As part of the Union’s industrial work, there are also some policies that we encourage companies to adopt (such as those on equal opportunities and maternity and paternity rights). Members should speak to their industrial organiser or lay representative for more information on recommended workplace policies.
