UNISON Centre – 130 Euston Road, London

The union is holding our annual seminar for all LGPS Board members, branches officers, activists and members on the governance and economics of the LGPS. There are major reforms being implemented England, Wales and Scotland and these will be discussed across the day.

We will also be launching a major training programme for members and activists to get more involved in the responsible investment policies of their funds.  Issues such as Climate Change, Worker Rights, Executive Pay, Workers on Company Boards, and Living Wage for the companies your fund invests in. Come and find out about this new initiative.

Outside speakers have been invited from Labour’s Shadow LGPS Minister, the LGA, and ShareAction.
