Back to all Motions

National Disabled Members 2003
9 July 2003

Conference welcomes the decision taken at UNISON National Delegate Conference to continue political links with the Labour Party. Further, Conference warmly welcomes the initiatives taken by the National Disabled Members’ Committee during the last year to establish a closer working relationship with the union’s Affiliated Political Forum.

Conference agrees that the National Disabled Members’ Committee should continue to forge these political links in order that the union can promote our disabled members’ agenda. To this end Conference agrees that disabled members:

1)should be encouraged to contribute to the Affiliated Political Fund and

2)be encouraged to become more involved in the UNISON Labour Link activities of the branch and in Labour Party policy making forums and constituencies.
