- 2008 Retired Members' Conference
- 13 June 2008
Conference believes that Retired Members’ Conference should include Caucus Meetings for Black Members, Disabled Members, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Members and Women Members. This would establish parity with all the Conferences of their working counterparts who have had such meetings as part of their timetable virtually since UNISON’s inception in 1993.
These meetings provide members with the opportunity to get together with like- minded colleagues and discuss issues of mutual interest and where relevant progress them on the Conference agenda. They also provide an invaluable forum for new delegates and visitors and the opportunity for mutual support.
Conference therefore instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee to liaise with appropriate bodies with a view to introducing these meetings at Conference 2009.
