If we’ve learned one thing this year it’s that our Union works best when rank and file members work together to democratize it from below, and set policies which empower our leadership to represent us effectively.
Wales Congress is the governing body of UCU Cymru and the next Congress will be on 2 March 2019. As a branch, and because of the spectacular growth in our membership, we can now send up to a whopping 23 delegates, and if you would be interested in going then please nominate yourself by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 2 January.
Congress is an opportunity to influence policy and, as a branch, we are entitled to submit 2 motions. These will be chosen at our next Cardiff UCU General Meeting (on 23 January) so it’s not too early to start thinking about motions you would like to submit.
