The original requisition for a Special Conference was submitted by Manchester Branch on 14th October.
I am writing on behalf of our Branch to requisition a Special Local Government Service Group Conference.
In accordance with UNISON Rule D3.4.11 on xx.xx.xx date our Branch / Branch Executive agreed to call for the requisition of a Special Local Government Service Group Conference to consider the following business:
- The 2014-2016 NJC Pay Proposals.
- The decision to cancel strike action on 14th October.
- The future Pay Consultation protocols in respect of Local Government pay claims.
- The best means to secure a decent pay increase for Local Government members and to receive and consider all motions from Branches and Regions concerning the above.’
For a Conference to be called Branches representing 25% of the service group membership need to support that requisition within two calendar months.
It appears that target is on the brink of being achieved within one month if it has not already done so.
Clearly some Branches may have also submitted the requisition without letting us know, but the following Branches have indicated to Manchester Branch that they have submitted the requisition:
Kensington and Chelsea
If anyone in a Branch has submitted the requisition and is not included in the list above, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many Branches have also indicated their intention to agree the requisition at forthcoming Branch meetings.
Further updates will be posted but regardless of the outcome of the National pay ballot due to be announced on 14th November the Special Conference will allow Branches to consider the best way to obtain decent pay for our members and prevent any repeat of the current debacle our members have had to endure.
