This is our Union's AGM and "Parliament" which decides rules, finances and policy for the forthcoming year.
There are around 2,000 delegates and visitors from all over the United Kingdom and a number of international guests.
I am here as the UNISON National Executive Committee member for Community (members who work for Housing Associations or the voluntary sector).
As usual I will try and post on as many speeches, fringes and events as possible. Sometimes these posts may not be in strict date or time order.
Personal opinion as always.
