UNISON Community National Seminar & Conference 2017

UNISON members that work for Housing Associations and the voluntary sector have an annual 2 day National Seminar and Conference. 

This years seminar is in Bournemouth and started for me this morning with a meeting of the Service Group Executive to discuss the seminar, conference arrangements and SGE speakers on motions.

Then at noon, there was the biannual meeting of UNISON Housing Association sector. All delegates who work in Housing Associations were invited to discuss sector issues, common problems and good practice. Pay was the key issue but also most delegates present had either just been through workplace restructures or expecting one soon.  I was elected as a Vice Chair.

At the same time there was sector meetings for Community & Voluntary and Major Charities committee.

It was agreed to set up an online forum so delegates can share between relevant information.

The seminar itself started at 2.30pm with our keynote speaker, Steve Reed MP . Will blog further.
