RETIRED MEMBERS REPORT FOR THE COMMITTEE MEETING 19TH FEBRUARY 2019

RETIRED MEMBERS REPORT FOR THE COMMITTEE MEETING

19TH FEBRUARY 2019

 

TV LICENSES FOR THE OVER 75’s

 

This is now gaining momentum, and is being featured more and more by the media with questions also being asked in parliament. Hopefully the letter designed by the NPC will be successfully circulated by all pensioners to their MPs, and that many pensioners would have participated in the on line BBC questionnaire on the issue.

Dick Hewlett and myself we be attending the NPC organised rally in London on the 7th of March.

 

LTB 078/19 REVISED  BRANCH MODEL CONSTITUTION

 

Paragraph 4.4 Branch Organisation item 6 which refers to Retired Members with their position and roles within the Branch appears to be settled albeit a little ambiguous with reference to electing ‘other branch officers’ in item 3 of the paragraph. However, this should allow us (RMs) the opportunity to move forward.

 

SANTANDER BRANCH CLOSURE : POST OFFICE CONNECTION

 

An aural report will be given, and will serve as an, forinformation only contribution which may be beneficial toward pensioners.

 

LOCAL AUTHORITY BUDGETS 2019/20

 

It would be a worthwhile exercise to asses, when it happens, what the local authority budgets for councils within our Branch boundaries will have on pensioners. The main issues being care in the community and potential reductions in bus services. Should there be any significant reductions in either, then the Branch with the support of all likeminded organisations be prepared to rally and protest against any proposed cuts.

 

RETIRED MEMBERS VOICE SUPPLEMENTARY

 

I have requested additional copies of the RMs supplementary for the Branch which can be circulated within the Branch for information purposes to all the membership. CWU HQs are looking into the request.
