UNISON National Delegates Conference 2023: Regional Delegates Briefing

Today I went to Liverpool in advance of our UNISON National Delegate Conference (NDC) for a briefing as a regional delegate. Yvonne Green and I were elected at our AGM to be the Greater London regional delegates at conference, supporting our delegates at NDC and representing the region. 

UNISON is the largest union in the UK with 1.3 million members. At the briefing today we were told that there will be some 600 plus branches represented at NDC and 1277 delegates (as well as several hundred visitors and exhibitors). 905 delegates are female (as fitting a union made up of predominantly female members), 149 low paid and 132 define themselves as black. 

There will be 30 fringes during NDC. You can find your regional delegates on the side of the main conference debating hall. Our Greater London regional briefing will be tomorrow evening where Jo, the Regional Secretary,  Yvonne and I will brief delegates and answer any questions or queries.
