Important reminders for UNISON Branches

As a chronically disorganised individual, I am amongst those who find the administrative routine of the Union challenging at the best of times. In these times of cuts and redundancies it's even harder.



I am therefore indebted to a UNISON comrade for his help with an important part of the annual routine - the submission of the annual branch financial returns.

(http://lawatwork.blogspot.com/2011/03/deadline-for-branch-returns.html).



As Nick points out, every UNISON Branch must submit financial returns by 15 March.



There are some other things every branch must do. Every branch must hold an Annual General Meeting by 31 March (UNISON Rule G.3.2). Every branch must organise annual elections of branch officers (UNISON Rule G.4.1.2).



These rules apply equally to branches under regional supervision.



It's tough having to keep up with all this routine detail at the same time as organising the defence of hundreds of jobs - but that's the job of those responsible for the running of UNISON branches.



(London local government branches should also remember Thursday's deadline for nominations for the Regional Local Government Committee Annual General Meeting.)
