All members are urged to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held across four aggregate meetings to offer members times that may be more convenient in terms of working patterns.
Members need only attend one of the meetings. If you wish, you can attend more than one aggregate meeting but may only vote at one of them and can only be included in the quorum for one of them. The meetings will be held on:-
- Thursday 2nd March 2023, 6-7:30pm, Augustine Church, 41-43 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EL
- Tuesday 7th March 2023, 12:30 -2pm, North East Locality Office, East Room, 101 Niddrie Mains Road, Edinburgh, EH16 4DS
- Thursday 9th March 2023, 12:30-2pm, North West Locality Office, Room G2, 8 West Pilton Gardens, Edinburgh EH4 4DP
Wednesday 15th March 2023, 12:30-2pm, The Business Centre, City Chambers, High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1YP
The agenda and order of business of each aggregate meeting will be identical and the results of voting will be the total of votes cast across all of the meetings. The quorum is 150 and the total number of qualifying members attending the aggregate meetings will define whether that quorum is met.
The agenda includes nominations, motions and rule changes received by the closing date in the preliminary notice. Any amendments will be posted on the website and made available to members.
Any two members can propose amendments to motions. These must be in writing and arrive at firstname.lastname@example.org by Noon, Wednesday 22nd February 2023. Questions on the Annual Report and Financial Statement* must be received by noon Wednesday 1st March 2023 to ensure the information is available for a response.
We recognise that to ensure all our members can fully participate it may be necessary to make adjustments. If you require any adjustment please contact the branch office at email@example.com or call 0131 558 7488 and we will discuss your requirements.
A good attendance at the Annual General Meeting is essential to the running of the branch. Please make every effort to attend to set your policies and to ensure that the branch can elect its officers and have its structures in place to meet this year’s challenges.
To be admitted to the AGM please bring with you ANY of the following:
- Your UNISON Membership Card
- A recent pay slip with evidence of subscription payments
I look forward to seeing you.
* The Financial Statement will be in the supplementary agenda.
