Camden UNISON AGM – Wed 4 March, 3.30-5pm Rooms 10.10/11/12, 5 Pancras Square Please Note – Paid time off has been agreed, including reasonable travel time

Each year Camden UNISON holds an Annual General Meeting, open to all our members, where we report on recent activities and also discuss what we plan to do during the coming year. The meeting also discusses any motions submitted by members.
 
Any member can submit a motion to be discussed at the AGM, but it must be sent to unison@camden.gov.uk by the deadline on 5pm on Monday 17 February. If you have never written a motion before and would like to talk to someone about the best way to do it, please contact us at the Camden UNISON Branch Office and we’ll do our best to help you – although don’t be put off, it’s a very straightforward thing to do! We have the deadline so that there is time to get the agenda completed and circulated to members before the meeting. This helps make it possible for anyone to get involved.
 
As well as the meeting on 4 March, we will also be holding satellite meetings. The main one of these will be in the Crowndale Centre and more details are to follow shortly. This will be during a lunchtime. We will also be arranging to have meetings in each of the NSL bases – our members there will not be given time off to attend the main AGM. Dates for these will be out soon.
 
Retired Members AGM – Wed 4 March, 1.30pm
Room 10.10, 5PS
 
On the same day, retired members of the branch also have their AGM – specific emails/letters have gone out giving notice, but please put the date in your diary if you’re one of our retired members.
 
Branch elections
 
Each year, we elect our UNISON stewards and branch officers. Information about this has already been sent out, but if you want to stand as a steward or branch officer, please complete the relevant form (see attachments) and return to unison@camden.gov.uk by 5pm on Friday 7 Feb. If you want to know more about what’s involved, please do contact us in the Branch Office. Local stewards represent UNISON members in their work area/team, try to recruit new members and take part in the branch campaigns. Branch Officers have responsibility for departmental/corporate issues, negotiations and campaigns. We are able to offer quite a lot of support and training so just get involved!
 
Stand Up To Racism Trade Union Conference – Sat 8 Feb, 12-4.30pm
SOAS (Brunei Gallery), Russell Square WC1H 0XG
 
Camden UNISON is sending a delegation to this important conference, so if you are interested in coming along contact unison@camden.gov.uk so that we can reserve a place on the delegation. There’s a great line up of speakers and it’s a good chance for us to discuss with other trade unionists how we can challenge racism in and out of the workplace.
 
March Against Racism – Sat 21 March, 12 noon, central London
 
UN Anti Racism Day is on 21 March, and in London there will be a march and rally/gig. More details will be out soon, but get the date in your diary!
 
Hope to see you at some of these events.
