The General Standing Orders Committee had hoped that the agenda for the Young Workers Conference due to be held on 21st January would be issued on the website by close of play on Friday 20thDecember.

As this week has progressed it has become clear that due to a number of issues including the General Election and the Royal Mail dispute a number of departments at CWU HQ are not in a position to meet this deadline.

The General SOC has therefore taken the decision to publish the motions and the Standing Orders to allow Branches and Regional Sub Committees to see the order of motions and to start preparing for conference.   The completed agenda will be issued as soon as possible in early January.

As you will know, the Young Workers Conference will select two delegates to represent the Young Workers Members to attend General Conference 2020.     The Standing Orders for the Young Workers Conference will advise a ballot to select these two delegates and it will be conducted during Conference itself.   Nominees must be members of the Union and have the support of their branch and/or Regional Young Workers Sub Committee.    Additionally, individuals must be willing to accept nomination.

The exception to this are members of the Young Workers Committee themselves who may be proposed for these positions but need to have the nomination of the Young Workers Committee and/or any Regional Young Workers Sub Committee.

Branches and Regional Young Workers Committees should forward any nominees on the attached form for this ballot to by no later than Wednesday 15th January 2020.

Branches are also reminded to register their delegates to the conference using the online registration link

Any queries regarding this Letter to Branches should be addressed to Angela Niven on 020 8971 7256 or by email to

Yours sincerely,
