2022 Virtual National Women’s Conference

17 – 18 February 2022

Virtual Conference

UNISON’s National Women’s Committee has agreed to hold a Virtual Women’s National Conference on Thursday 17th to Friday 18th February 2022.


Further to consultation with the Self-Organised Group Committee and following the recently updated COVID-19 restrictions and the uncertainty attached to the spread of the Omicron variant, the decision has been taken to transfer UNISON’s Womens Conference 2022 to a virtual platform. The decision has been taken to support branches, give them certainty in these times and to protect our activist’s health, safety, and wellbeing.

The Womens virtual conference will be scheduled within the already arranged dates for the conference. Details will be available as soon as they are confirmed.


We have now opened the 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 15th October 2021 

UNISON’s Women’s National Conference takes place over three days. All delegates and visitors may attend all sessions of conference but voting on motions is restricted to delegates only. Delegates should attend all sessions of Conference.

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

Delegates should contact their branch to be registered through the OCS.
