Local Meetings: Crewe, Manchester, Solihull, Staines, More…

This is a reminder to all UNITE members in the Crewe area about the meeting that was announced last week:
Date – Wednesday, 1st July (TODAY!)
Time – 12.30pm for 1 hour, prompt start
Location – The Duke of Gloucester

We will be electing reps, discussing the issues around pay and pensions, outlining the national campaign strategy and voting on a motion. We will be joined by Sarah Holden, the local UNITE organiser.
Do encourage others to come along, including interested non-members. The Duke of Gloucester pub is a short walk from the CRE02 site. It is adjacent to the A5020 University Way, close to the roundabout at Crewe Green where that road meets the A534 Crewe Road.
This meeting has been arranged by your current reps, who are:
Robert “Wilf” Williams (trained), Bob Anderson, Alan Jenney, Stephen Ryan and Adrian Prince.
There will be an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) for all UNITE members in the Manchester bargaining unit on Friday 10th July. The time and venue are to be confirmed.
The meeting will discuss latest developments in the pay and pensions campaign, and decide how to respond if the company has breached our Recognition Agreement and Annex 1 by dismissing Malcolm Tetlow.
A UNITE meeting is planned for Tuesday 14th July. Further details will be sent to members in the Midlands region.
A UNITE meeting is planned for Wednesday 15th July. Further details will be sent to members in the Thames Valley and South-West region.
When’s Yours?
With our “Enough Is Enough” campaign around pay and pensions gathering pace, it is important that you have the opportunity to meet up with your reps and other members to discuss the situation – wherever you are based.
If there’s not a meeting scheduled for your area, why not contact one of your local reps / contacts (see list below) to discuss setting one up?
If there’s no rep or contact where you are, why not volunteer?
