Branch Secretary :

Open Event for Unite Members in the Not for Profit Sector

Are you a member of Unite working in in the voluntary or not for profit sector and in the London or the Eastern region?


If so, you are invited to join us for our open event as follows: 


* 6.30-8.30 pm


* Monday 13 July 2015 at the Diskus Centre, Unite the Union,


* Unite House, 128 Theobald's Road, Holborn, London, WC1X 8TN (map)



This will be an evening to:


  • discuss the role of the voluntary sector in an age of austerity
  • meet other people in the sector and learn about their campaigns
  • find out more about how the union works and how you can get involved
  • have a drink and light refreshments and build networks across the sector.


We are delighted to have speakers from the Greece Solidarity campaign, as well as from the Unite Community membership.  We have also invited Jeremy Corbyn MP and Sadiq Khan MP to give thoughts about what is happening nationally and regionally.  There will be time for discussion and networking, and for shaping the future work of the Union around the not for profit sector.


Let us know if you would like to bring information about a campaign you are involved in.


The meeting is being put on by the Region’s Sectoral Committee and the lead officer for membership in not for profit organisations.
