In continuing with our practice for the last couple of years, UNISON Manchester will hold our Branch Annual General Meeting in both physical and virtual form for 2023. This is an important event for the branch and all members are strongly encouraged to attend so they can participate in the democratic, decision-making process which will set branch policy for the coming year.
To improve participation at this meeting we are running an aggregate AGM which will provide two opportunities for members to attend:
Physical Meeting (Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, Manchester M2 5NS)
- Lunchtime Session – 12:30pm on Wednesday 15 March 2023
This year we are very fortunate to have Professor Gus John as our speaker for the lunchtime session.
Professor Gus John is a renowned activist and academic who has been working in education, youth work and social justice since the 1960s. He is also an acknowledged authority on community and social affairs among the African Diaspora community in Britain and Europe, a dynamic public speaker and a regular commentator on radio and television and in the printed media.
Virtual Meeting (To Be Hosted Via Microsoft Teams)
- Evening Session – 5:30pm on Wednesday 15 March 2023
For voting purposes please ensure that you only attend ONE of these meetings.
If you plan to attend the physical meeting at 12:30pm on Wednesday 15 March 2023 then you do not need to register in advance. Please turn up on the day and your details will be recorded at the registration desk outside the meeting room in the Friends Meeting House.
A free buffet will be available at the physical meeting and attendees at both sessions will automatically be entered into a £100 prize draw.
