Branch Secretary :

Two Fantastic AGM Guest Speakers

Announcing two fantastic, inspiring guest speakers ..
We are delighted to announce that Sharon Graham, Executive Officer for Organising, Leverage and Special Projects, will be speaking at the Branch AGM in March. Sharon will be talking about the ground-breaking online pay claim generator developed by her department that draws in information on price rises and company profits to create a unique pay claim for each employer. This will be a major boost to reps and activists in the housing association sector.
We are also honoured to welcome Keishia Taylor from the University and College Union. Keisha will take us through the UCU's robust strike action to defend pensions and fight the race to the bottom in colleges and universities. More about their strike here.

Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
  • Adverts or information which is posted for commercial gain.
