Reclaim the Union National Meeting

Having enjoyed a festive break, your blogger is back for 2015 and looking forward to...
Reclaim the Union National Meeting

Saturday 17th January, 2pm to 5pm

The Mechanics Centre
103 Princess St
Manchester M1 6DD
There will be a pooled fare system so please book transport in advance to save on costs.

• Build a campaign for a fighting, democratic union
• Agree left candidates for NEC elections in 2015
• Discuss standing one left candidate for General Secretary in 2015
In light of the pay disputes and the conspicuous absence of lay member control of our union, we, the undersigned NEC members, call on all left activists, groups and organisations in UNISON to come together to discuss and agree on the kind of campaign we need to transform our union into a fighting, democratic union.

We need to encourage as many like-minded activists within our midst to come forward and stand in every seat possible in the forthcoming NEC elections.

We want to launch an organising campaign which engages activists and involves the grass roots - which builds our networks and strengthens our hand on the key issues of the day.

So we call for an assembly to agree a left slate, call on others to join our slate and stand under one banner.

We also call for maximum left unity in the forthcoming General Secretary election, to take place during 2015.

Join us!
