At the next monthly meeting of the London Central branch, this Tuesday June 9 at 7pm at Headland House, we will be starting the build-up to this year’s NUJ Annual Delegate Meeting, which takes place in the north west seaside resort of Southport from November 19-22 and is the forum in which the union determines its policies for the coming year.
It’s extremely important that as many branch members as possible try to attend Tuesday’s meeting because we will be proposing draft motions for the ADM, which will be put out for consultation after the meeting and considered for final approval and submission at the July branch meeting.
If you feel strongly about something and want it raised, then please draw up something and bring it along on Tuesday night. The aim is to look at what we have, circulate it and then take a final vote on it in July. We will of course have an opportunity to amend our resolutions — and anyone else’s for that matter — at a later meeting. A guide to how to draw up resolutions can be found by going to the NUJ website and clicking on the ADM 2009 logo. A link will also be posted on the London Central NUJ site.
The preliminary agenda will be out in August and again will be available to view online. The branch will make any necessary amendments and elect delegates at the September branch meeting and the final agenda will be out in October.
Let’s ensure we have maximum involvement from all sectors covered by our branch. NUJ members from the national titles in particular will have much to contribute to the important discussions that will take place in Southport. Every member can play their part in making ADM 2009 a success — and that means you.
We will also be discussing other matters at the meeting, including requests for help from our members at national newspapers and other media outlets in fighting job losses and other cutbacks. So please come along on Tuesday — Headland House is just five minutes’ walk from King’s Cross and St Pancras rail stations and there will be drinks in a local pub after the meeting.
