Review of the National Lay Membership Structure

Back to all Motions

2004 Transport Service Group Conference
27 February 2004

This Conference notes the actions taken to date by the Executive regarding the review of the Energy, Transport and Water & Environment service group structures at national level.

Conference notes the outcome of the consultation exercise with all three service groups and in the light of this agrees that further work is necessary subject to these guiding principles:

i)That there is no change to the branch and regional structures as part of this exercise;

ii)That the service group sectors and their committees will be retained and their autonomy over pay and conditions of service will be preserved;

iii)That the current arrangements for branch representation at both the service group and national delegate conferences will be retained;

iv)That no changes will be implemented without the agreement of the service group conferences;

v)That any resource savings should be used to improve services and sector organisation.

Conference therefore calls upon the Transport Service Group Executive, in liaison with both the Energy and the Water & Environment Service Group Executives, to produce detailed proposals for consideration by the 2005 Service Group Conference.
