17 September 2012
The CWU Womens Conference will be held on Saturday 15 September 2012 at The Bull Hotel, Westgate, Peterborough.
Branches are entitled to send two delegates to the Conference. If you wish to attend please contact any Branch office
Each Branch is entitled to submit one motion for consideration to be included on the agenda of the Conference. Please contact any branch offcie of ypu have a motion you would like the branch to submit. Motion forms must be returned by 22 August 2012.
As with previous Equality Conferences, the agenda will be structured in such a way as to maximise debate and participation by delegates. There will be two sections to the agenda, one for motions which 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.
Under the rules of the union the Conference has the entitlement 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.
As with previous Equality Conferences, 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.
