CWU Retired Members' Conference 2010

27 November 2009

CWU Retired Members Advisory Committee

The CWU Retired Members' Conference will be held on Thursday 4 March 2010, at CWU Headquarters.


Each Branch is entitled to submit one motion for consideration to be included on the agenda of the Conference. Motion forms must be returned by 18 December 2009, if by post by first post or 12 noon if submitted electronically.

There will be two sections to the agenda, one for motions that are eligible for consideration for submission to General Conference, and one for motions that in the view of the Standing Orders Committee would not be admissible to the General Conference agenda.

The Retired Membersí 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. A ballot to select the two motions will be held at the Conference.


Observers are also welcome to attend. It would be helpful, for administrative purposes, for details of observers to be entered on the Delegate form. Admission to the Conference for observers is by production of their membership card.

Election of Delegates to General Conference

The Retired Members' Conference will select two delegates to represent the Retired Members to attend General Conference 2010. The Standing Orders for the Retired Membersí Conference will advise a ballot to select these two delegates will be conducted during Conference itself.
