We’re doing our best to reduce the environmental impact of our conferences. This year, we are providing all delegates with the chance to opt out of being sent paper copies of our conference materials as part of the delegates’ despatch.  All these documents will be available online via the conference app, and on the UNISON website.  You can then download them onto your laptop or tablet to view online while you are at conference.  If you wish to opt out please indicate this on the ‘My Requirements’ screen options on the Online Conference System (OCS).  If you do not opt out, you will be sent all documentation in hard copy form.

For further information, please see the ‘Opting Out’ document below.
