affiliating to Wolverhampton TUC 2020
We've had some good attendances at meetings and participation in our events this year. However many who are involved are not delegates from their branches. Several branches failed to affiliate his year and several have been active with us for some years without their branches affiliating.
Please ask your branch to affiliate and to elect delegates this year or just promote our meetings to other trades unionists, better still bring someone along.
Our meetings are on the third Thursday of the month at the very accessible UNITE office in Wolverhampton and we have interesting guest speakers most months.
