2021 National LGBT+ Conference

19 – 21 November 2021

The Brighton Centre Kings Road Brighton East Sussex BN1 2GR

UNISON has made the decision to begin the re-commencement of physical UNISON Rule Book Conferences for 2021.

UNISON’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Plus (LGBT+) Members Self-Organised Group Committee has agreed to hold a LGBT+ Members Self-Organised Group Conference from 3pm of Friday 19th November until 12pm on Sunday 21st November 2021.

Under current government guidelines, we would not be able to hold a physical conference, but with the dynamic COVID-19 situation we find ourselves in, things may change.

We think it is really important to put plans in place so that if we can hold physical conferences in 2021, we will do so.

With this in mind, we have opened Online Conferencing System (OCS) to allow branches to register delegates and submit motions in line with the rule-book requirements.

Please note the deadline to submit motions on OCS is 12.00 noon on Friday 30th July 2021   

The LGBT+ Members Conference takes place over three days.  All delegates may attend all sessions of conference and voting on motions is restricted to branch delegates. Delegates should attend all sessions of Conference.

In the event that the government guidance restricts UNISON from holding a physical Conference, LGBT+ Members Conference 2021 will revert to a virtual conference. 

 In this event, there will be some changes to the way that Conference is conducted. 

All registered delegates and Branches will be informed of any changes to the delivery of Conference 

The conference bulletin will have further information on motion submission from the SOC and submission deadlines.

Delegates should be registered as normal through the OCS.
