We are writing to let you know that this year’s AGM will be held on 11th March 2022. It is likely this will be a virtual meeting but we will confirm the format closer to the date when we know more about COVID restrictions.
The last year has proved how vital it is that we have active members engaged in their unions. Members have talked to us about the issues you have faced working remotely and thanked reps for the support they have had in person. We have a variety of roles within UNISON and if you want to get involved then there is no better time.
We will support and help new reps and if you want to get active why not get in touch for a chat about what we can do with you to help members in your workplace. If you wish to stand for a branch post or to be a rep please contact the office for the form, either by ringing 024 7655 0829 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For existing reps there are many opportunities to get more involved at a branch and regional level. With this circular are the nomination papers for stewards, officers and seconded reps. The nominations open on Monday 20th December and close at midday on 19th January.
We know that not all members are physically in their workplaces so if you want to be nominated for a role then please fill in the form and get 2 members to propose and second you. This can be done via email where the member can simply forward back your form to you and put that they agreed to nominate you. It would be great if they can include all the details we normally ask for on the forms. If you are struggling with this please get in touch; it’s been a different and difficult year and we will be as flexible as we can be to meet nomination requirements.
