Trade Union Administration Act Membership Records – Change of Address

Trade Union Administration Act Membership Records – Change of Address
LTB 038/2017 explained the impact of the recently enacted legislation, in particular the opportunity for improvements identified by the NEC appointed Assurers during our pre-audit assessment.
The Trade Union Admin Act came into force with a view to ensuring all members could receive correspondence and participate in ballots. Assurers have been appointed to check that we have taken all necessary measures available to comply with the law by way of checking how we capture, maintain and update membership records. A key component therefore is for the Union to hold the correct address for all its members.
We currently offer three ways in which members can change their address, via logging in with their own password on the web page, contacting their local branch or contacting membership records department at CWU HQ. We also have a section in every edition of the voice which can be found in the ‘Contact Us’ section on page 2.
We would ask branches to continue checking and updating their records at regular intervals to ensure our member’s data is correct. We believe it would greatly assist the Union as a whole to show that we are taking steps to ensure compliance with the law if we displayed notices on all available Union boards to encourage members to contact us when there is a change to their data. Branch assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Any enquiries regarding this Letter to Branches should be addressed to the Senior Deputy General Secretary’s Department on telephone number 020 8971 7237, or email address
Yours sincerely,
