As part of Thatcher’s legacy the union has to hold a ballot regarding its political fund every 10 years. As you may know UNISON’S Political Fund is divided into a General Political Fund for general campaigning and the Affiliated Political Fund that goes to the Labour Party. The ballot papers were sent out with the last issue of U Magazine, which you should have received by now. The ballot closes on 30th November 2014.
The Branch AGM will be held on Wednesday 4th March 2014. Please make a note in your diary now. It will be in the Waltham Forest Town Hall Council Chamber at 12 noon and will be held again for members who cannot get to a lunch time meeting at 4pm. Please make sure you attend so that your voice is heard and encourage all your UNISON work colleagues to come along too. This is a meeting open to all members. Members are entitled to make suggestions and draw up motions for the meeting so please send any ideas that you may have into the branch office.
