As you will all be aware last year the Branch suffered a significant loss with the passing of Bob Woods.
His contribution to the Branch will be and already has been sorely missed. So much so that we are now anxious to recruit any Retired Member or Members who feel they can continue to support the Branch in this capacity.
UNISON recognises the value that Retired Members’ inclusion and involvement has and arrange regular meetings to ensure continuity of contribution. So I am appealing to any Retired Member who feels they could accommodate time to attend meetings, especially Branch Committee meetings and support the Branch through what is evolving as very challenging times and continue the legacy that Bob left.
I am happy to discuss expectations of the role and as a national Branch, would be more than happy to have several applicants to accommodate logistics.
I do currently have an invitation from UNISON Greater London Regional Office for Retired Member Delegates to attend a Regional Retired Members Delegates meeting on Tuesday, 10th March 2020 in Euston for any who may wish an introduction to Retired Members from other Branches, but do need to respond by Tuesday, 4th February 2020.
