 MOTIONS

  1. One UNISON Branch for Dumfries & Galloway

Over the past year since the introduction of the Integrated Health and Social Care Partnership both NHS and Local Government Branches have been working closer together on matters that affect UNISON members.  We have already benefited by sharing Branch administrative support costs.  As a consequence of this closer working and with the realisation there is greater strength in numbers both Branch Committees believe the best interests of all of our members will be better served by one unified UNISON branch in Dumfries & Galloway.

This motion calls upon the Annual General Meeting of the Dumfries & Galloway Local Government Branch to support the merger of both the Local Government and NHS Branches of UNISON into one single Branch for the Dumfries & Galloway Region.

We urge our membership to support this motion and to remit the Branch Officers to;

as soon as possible thereafter.

Proposed by the Branch Executive

 

  1. Branch Communications

“This meeting recognises that Communication with our membership is vital to the functioning of UNISON. We welcome the recent development of a Branch website and the publication of a printed newsletter in December 2016. However, we consider that any such communication channels can only be effective if suitably managed and updated on a regular basis.

We call on the Branch Executive to make the development and maintenance of a Communications Strategy a key priority in its Branch Assessment Plan.”
