UNISON Activists on the boards of Water Companies

Back to all Motions

2017 Water, Environment & Transport Conference
26 January 2017

This 2017 WET Conference notes that the Tories as usual have backtracked on a pledge which may have assisted ordinary workers via a seat on the Boards of Companies.

We believe that through our engagement with the Water Industry regulator OFWAT however that this initiative may not necessarily be dead in the water to excuse the pun as they are calling for wider engagement between employers and employee representatives to increase accountability amongst other things.

Conference asks the WET Executive to raise this issue with OFWAT as part of our shopping list agenda through periodic meetings with their Chief Executive or her direct reports which if it becomes reality will have a beneficial effect for members.
