The preliminary agenda for Unite’s Policy Conference 2018 is out, listing all the motions submitted by branches and constitutional committees.
Each branch and committee now has the opportunity to submit one amendment to a motion. Your amendment has to be in by Friday 11 May 2018.
Amendments can’t change the overall thrust of a motion or be on an unrelated topic. They are useful to improve or correct problems in otherwise good motions, or to add points that may have been missed or which arose after the original motion was submitted.
The motion numbers may change in the final agenda, and many related motions and amendments are likely to be “composited” (merged) before they are debated.
The conference itself will take place 2-6 July in Brighton.
