Manchester: Extraordinary General Meeting

There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting for all UNITE members in scope of the Manchester agreements:
2pm – 3:30pm, Thursday 29th November
Hot desk area, MAN33-1 – East

You are entitled to attend the meeting in work time. However, if your manager may need to arrange cover for while you are in the meeting, please confirm your attendance with them as soon as possible. If you have difficulty getting release, please contact a rep as soon as possible.
The agenda will include:

  • Current issues (including offshoring, implementation of the deal, out of hours, pensions)
  • Deciding on pay claim for April 2008
  • Elections for Reps, Health & Safety Reps
  • Nominations for UNITE’s Executive Council

If you have other items for the agenda, please let your reps know as soon as possible.
We are looking to strengthen our team of Reps and Health & Safety Reps. If you would be willing to stand, or want to suggest someone else, your reps want to hear from you.
If you’re not sure whether to take on one of these roles, our new agreements provide the facility for you to undertake some of the training prior to standing for election.
If you’re interested, want to stand or to nominate someone else, please get in touch by Thursday 22nd November.
