Closer joint working between Transport and Water and Environment Service Group Executive

Back to all Motions

2006 Transport Service Group Conference
15 March 2006

Conference notes that the NEC is undertaking a major review of Service Group and branch structures in line with the motion carried at last year’s National Delegate Conference. A Working Party has been established with representatives of the NEC and all the service groups.

Conference further notes that discussions between the Water and Environment, Transport and Energy Executives regarding a possible merger did not command the necessary support at last year’s service group conferences.

However Conference welcomes the successful joint Transport and Water and Environment branch seminar held in 2005 and approves the decision to hold a similar joint seminar this year.

Furthermore the decision of the two Executives to hold joint meetings is another welcome step.

Conference instructs the Executive to

1.ensure that our representative on the Working Party dealing with the review of service group structures undertakes a full discussion on the various options available and that an appropriate report back on this review of service group structures is made at the joint branch seminar

2.continue discussions and participation with the Water and Environment Service Group Executive on closer joint working.

3.consult branches on any further developments as appropriate.
