A word from Kevin - April 2008

The annual general meeting is probably the most important in the calendar for the branch, so it was extremely dispappointing to find that so few members attended.  The committee tried to make it more accessible by moving it to March – is there anything else we can do?

The pay campaign has moved on quickly over the past few weeks and we are now in a position to consult members on what is said to be a final offer from the employers.  This offer is far short of the claim made earlier in the year and I find it very disappointing that the employers are not taking this issue seriously.  We will be balloting and I would urge everybody to take the opportunity to vote and have your say.
