Ealing Unison AGM

Ealing Unison held three aggregate meetings of our AGM earlier this month. Members had the oppotunity to view last years budget and consider the draft budget for the year ahead t0 31st December 2020.

The Branch Chair, Branch Secretary and other Convenors updated members on casework, campaigning and recruitment/retention within the Branch and there was discussion and questions about the upcoming Mayoral elections, Corona Virus, Ealing Council and members in outsourced services such as careworkers.

Some branch officer positions were filled and those vacant positions will now be considered by the branch committee.

Unfortunately the meeting was not quorate and as such no minutes will be published.
