UNISON Development and Organisation Committee

I am hoping not to be late for this morning's meeting of the Development and Organisation Committee of the UNISON National Executive Council (NEC) which is set to debate the report of a review of our branch and service group structures agreed at Conference 2005 for report to this June's Brighton Conference.

I'll report here - and to branches in London - on the discussion as soon as I can. Some good ideas are emerging (allowing branches to be represented in more than one Region or Service Group, reviewing cross service group working to ensure accountability etc.) Other ideas, including a revised scheme for branches, a review of all resources (including branch funding) and annual reviews of branch organisation by Regions could be positive, but could also have the potential to create difficulties.

Watch this space...
