Dear UNISON Member,
Every year we send delegates to following UNISON Conferences:
Local Government Conference – An annual conference open to all members of the Local Government Service Group (Salford City Council,, Urban Vision, Schools and Salford City College). The Local Government Conference brings delegates together from Local Government branches across the UK to discuss and vote on motions relating to Local Government. The conference sets our policies on key issues like pay, terms and conditions, local government cuts etc.
National Delegates Conference – An annual conference open to all members regardless of employer. The National Delegates Conference brings delegates together from all UNISON branches to discuss and vote on motions related to all areas of interest, including austerity, the NHS, Brexit, international issues, changes to UNISON rules etc.
This year we are entitled to send the following number of delegates to each of these conferences:
Local Government Conference – 5 delegates (at least four must be female, one must be under 27 and one female delegate must be classed as “low paid”)
National Delegates Conference – 4 delegates (at least three must be female, one must be under 27 and one female delegate must be classed as “low paid”)
Both conferences will take place in Brighton on the following dates:
Local Government Conference: 17th and 18th June
National Delegates Conference: 19th – 22nd June
Delegates can attend both Conferences.
All transport, accommodation and expenses costs are covered by UNISON and we will aim to secure paid time off from work that should not affect your annual leave entitlement.
If you are interested in attending or would like to find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Noon on 21st February.
