Conference 2016

Conference takes place for five days each year in either April or May and is the parliament of our Union.

2016: 24th - 28th April, BIC, Bournemouth

Two of the five days are spent discussing issues that are appropriate to the whole Union. Then Conference is divided into sectional and industrial groupings for the remaining three days.

The conferences are motion based. The closing date for motions is usually around the beginning of March for Mark Hugall (CWU Newcastle) addresses conferenceGeneral Conference, and April for Industrial Conferences each year. Around 1200 delegates representing the Union's 300 000 members attend. Newcastle Amal have a long and proud history of being passionately involved and participating in CWU Conference and we plan to make 2016 no different. Our delegation has submitted motions and we will of course ensure that we are fully engaged in any motions and debate that could impact on our branch members.

Once again members can follow conferenece 2016 and the work of our branch delegation on our dedicated conference pages and via our social media feeds on Facebook and Twitter.
