Appropriate Funding for Women’s Self Organisation

Back to all Motions

2016 National Women's Conference
14 October 2015
Carried as Amended

Conference notes with concern that constraints on branch finances are leading to some women not being encouraged or able to participate in women’s self-organised group activities.

Conference notes with concern that financial constraints and controls at branch and regional level may be negatively impinging on women’s activism and as a consequence reducing the opportunities to grow new women activists and to encourage women activists to increase their involvement.

Conference instructs the National Women’s committee to work with all relevant UNISON bodies (including regional women’s groups) to;

1)Carry out an audit of attendances at women’s events and training in UNISON

2)Raise this issue of concern with Regional Convenors

3)Campaign to ensure that appropriate funding is available to support women’s self organisation to develop to its full potential in branches, regionally and nationally.
