- 2018 Community Service Group Conference
- 30 October 2017
- Carried as Amended
This conference recognises the lack of trade union recognition in the community and voluntary sector. This is known to be a contributory factor in the perpetuation of low wages and poor conditions of service in the sector. This situation also mitigates against stewards playing an active role in defending members.
This conference calls on the Community Service Group Executive to issue advice to branches with Community members on commissioning social care contracts. Such advice should focus on how to make trade union recognition a significant element in tender evaluation.
