Conference
2018 National Retired Members Conference
Date
20 June 2018
Decision

Conference notes with deep concern repeated attempts by the Tories to turn the young against the old and build a negative perception of older people as a drain on society. Conference believes that the intergenerational gap between young and old needs to be bridged by building understanding and relationships. Conference calls on the National Retired Members’ Committee to work with the National Executive Council to:

1) Encourage Retired Members Groups and Forums across the union to build relationships with corresponding groups of young members and offer them their experience and expertise in campaigning for our public services;

2) Build a campaign encouraging young and old to work together to oppose the Tory agenda which seeks to divide them.
