Manchester Branch Meetings

November’s meeting of the Greater Manchester IT Branch discussed nominations for the UNITE executive, and decided to nominate:
. Pat Coyne for the North-West seat
. Jane Stewart, Louise Cousins, Terri Miller and Dawn McAllister for the four women’s seats

The next branch meeting will be:
6pm-7:30pm, Thursday 6th December
Upstairs, Hare & Hounds pub, Shudehill, Manchester M4 4AA
[Near the spiral ramp to the Arndale car park and the Shudehill Metrolink and bus interchange]

All branch members are welcome.
As usual, a number of us plan to go out for a meal in Manchester after the meeting – if you’d like to join in, please let your reps know how many places you want.
