Southend UNISON Annual General Meeting
5pm, Thursday 19th March 2020
Committee Room 4a, Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend
Our Annual General Meeting is open to all our members. It’s when we get a chance as a branch to discuss our work over the year and decide what we want for next year. You can take part in electing your Branch Officers for the year ahead and you can ask questions about the union. We invite all members to come along – it’s your union!
There are free refreshments and a buffet at the end of the meeting (from 6:15pm). Thompson’s Solicitors and other organisations will be present with information stalls.
You can nominate people (including yourself!) to be officers and stewards, preferably in advance of the meeting and you can also raise motions and questions for discussion.
You should have received information in the post about this but if in doubt, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
Please follow us on Facebook – there is a Facebook event here.
Southend UNISON’s May newsletter is now out. It’s not just about the election! Articles on the Special pay conference, Black Members’ conference, the Civic Centre cafe and our campaign to save the Mental Health Therapy service.
