Order of Business for UNISON Conference

We now have the draft order of business for National Delegate Conference. Tuesday morning will see a debate on a Composite motion on the Arms Trade. Tuesday afternoon will see debate on Public Services (including a new Composite B on which the NEC is deferring its policy having been told that we have been asked for discussions by the National Young Members Forum).

Wednesday morning will see the main debate on organising and recruiting, including the NEC report on our structures and also the debate on the environment, while on that afternoon Conference will debate some of the International motions.

Thursday morning sees the debate on Equalities issues, including our campaign against the racist BNP. Thursday afternoon won’t be entirely taken up with the small number of Rule Amendments so Motion 111 on Child Poverty has also been timetabled.

Only one motion has been timetabled for Friday morning, Motion 112 on Violence Against Women, which will be taken immediately after a speech from Baroness Scotland (who appears to be our only Government speaker).
