CWU REDESIGN PROJECT – NATIONAL BRIEFING 13TH MARCH 2018
At today’s Redesign National Briefing in Manchester we had the opportunity to reflect on the positive changes that have been introduced in the last couple of years, review the challenges facing the CWU and the whole union movement and share thinking, ideas and views on what type of union we need to be to face the future.
Throughout Redesign we have been clear that major change must happen at CWU Headquarters. This is fundamental to securing the very future of our organisation and at today’s Briefing we were able to take you through the work we are doing to streamline CWU Headquarters.
A key element of today was to launch the next phase of Redesign which is a consultation on Conferences, Branches, Regions and National Structures. This booklet which was given out at the Briefing includes each of the consultation papers and a specific set of questions on each paper designed to provide a focal point for responses. The papers were positioned at the Briefing and the process going forward was explained including the timeline for responses and the approach we want Branches to take to ensure maximum participation.
Guidance for Completing the Consultation – Completing the Questionnaire
The consultation document for completion will be available electronically via the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/G62LN97
Branches can only submit one response to the consultation and this should be signed or verified by one of the principal Branch Officers.
Please answer all questions as fully as possible – the dialogue boxes will expand to allow you to provide detailed responses.
For clarity and ease of analysis please do not provide a hand-written response – all responses should be typed.
Please note there is space at the end of each section for any general comments or to raise any relevant issues not covered by the questions.
All responses to be submitted either by post addressed to Redesign Consultation, General Secretary’s Department at CWU HQ or via email to email@example.com – please note that all completed questionnaires must be received by close of business on 11 May 2018.
We would encourage all Branches to submit their views and opinions regarding the future of the union.
Any enquiries on the above LTB should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org

Tony Kearns – Senior Deputy General Secretary
