2019 National Retired Members Conference
11 June 2019
Carried as Amended

Conference supports the view expressed by previous motions that a revised UNISON Charter for Older People could be a valuable resource to promote the UNISON Retired Members’ Organisation, help retain members when they retire, involve and activate retired members and showcase UNISON and trade unionism among older people.

Conference notes that there is much existing policy agreed by retired members which could form the basis for a UNISON Charter for Older People.

However, Conference believes that in order for the Charter to be as relevant as possible there should be a consultation exercise with UNISON retired members with regard to the content of the charter.

Therefore, Conference calls on the National Retired Members’ Committee to:

1)Produce a revised UNISON Charter for Older People based on:

a)Existing policy agreed by UNISON retired members;

b)A consultation exercise with regions and self-organised groups;

2)Circulate the Charter as widely as possible.
