2016 National Retired Members Conference
14 June 2016

Conference notes that UNISON affiliates to the Trades Union Congress on the basis of its total membership, including retired members, and this determines the number of votes UNISON may cast at Congress.

But conference also notes that there are no places for retired members, as such, on the UNISON Congress delegation.

Conference finds it anomalous that the UNISON delegation takes part in debates at congress on matters of specific concern to retired members but does so in the absence of retired members there as delegates to speak for themselves.

Conference instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee to propose to the National Executive Council that it adds two retired members, elected by and from among the members of National Retired Members’ Committee, to the UNISON Congress delegation.
