CWU Annual Conference 2017
Sunday morning, 9 am in the Bournemouth International Conference Centre, and delegates from across the UK gather to attend the policy making body of the CWU; the Union's Annual Conference.
This year's conference is probably one of the toughest in terms of the issues facing working people of this country and their Trade Unions.
The motions to conference reflect this and the debates are highly formative, in the detail presented in evidence; and the cogent arguments put to conference by Branch delagates from across the UK.
The CWU Annual Conference is split over the four days of it's sitting:
Sunday to Monday - General Conference
Tuesday to Wednesday - Industrial Conferences (Postal, Telecoms & Financial Services)
Major policy issues on public services that affect everyone in this country such as the NHS, Worker's Rights, Pensioner's Rights, Workplace Health and Safety, Women and Equality Rights and those of the Disabled too are debated, along with policy creation on workplace terms and conditions including; bullying and harassment, sick leave, annual leave, career opportunities, promotion, and the implementation of national agreements with the various businesses that CWU members are employed in.
