- 2009 Retired Members' Conference
- 23 June 2009
- Carried as Amended
This Conference applauds UNISON for its policies of equality and inclusion for all its members.
Retired members are a valuable resource and it should be recognised that many of our number are still able, active and proud to be a vital part of UNISON. However, with the future growth of retired members due to the rise in life expectancy, the retired members are appalled by the lack of education and training courses available to them. This Conference, therefore, instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee to set up training courses specific to the retired members’ needs e.g. committee procedures, public speaking, motion writing, web design.
