CWU Black Workers' Conference 2010

27 November 2009

CWU Race Advisory Committee

The CWU Black Workers' Conference will be held on Saturday 6 February 2010 at The Apex City Quay Hotel, Dundee.


Each Branch is entitled to send two delegates to the Conference. It is expected that delegates will be from the ethnic minorities.


Each Branch is entitled to submit one motion for consideration to be included on the agenda of the Conference. The agenda will be structured to maximise debate and participation by delegates.

The CWU Black Workers' Conference has the entitlement under the rules of the union to submit two motions to stand in the name of the conference to General Conference. It is therefore important that if branches wish their motions to be in this category, they must contain policy that is capable of being discharged by the NEC, as opposed to either of the Industrial Executives. The two motions for submission to the General Conference agenda will be decided from amongst those motions adopted at the Conference.
