Relaunching Raise the Roof *

Back to all Motions

2004 National Women's Conference
7 October 2003
Carried as Amended

Southern Region brought their Raise the Roof Campaign to National Women’s Conference in Harrogate in 1999. National Women’s Conference sent the motion to the National Delegate Conference and it became UNISON policy.

A successful campaign was launched, a lot of work has been done, but there is still a lot to do.

Southern Region is no more, we have moved forward to form a wider Region with the South East. We have moved on but we want to ensure our campaign is not forgotten and moves on with us.

Conference calls upon the National Women’s Committee to relaunch the Raise the Roof Campaign to find out the successes where good workplace policies have been negotiated and disseminate good practice throughout UNISON. The National Women’s Committee should also undertake to promote the postcard campaign currently being run jointly by the Greater London Regional Women’s Committee and the Greater London Authority Domestic Violence Unit

The National Women’s Committee must report back to next year’s Conference on the progress that has already been made and launch a work programme to promote the campaign in the future.
