The purpose of this LTB is to invite and encourage Branches to send delegates to this year’s National Young Workers’ Education Event, which will take place over the weekend of Friday 22nd October through to Sunday 24th October and will be held at The County Hotel in Newcastle.

This weekend will be the first in-person event held for the Young Workers since January 2020 and it is important that all Branches use their best endeavours to send a delegate. We will be working with our Regional Secretaries to maximise attendance. The event will start promptly at 6pm on Friday 22nd October (although delegates will be welcome to check into the hotel from 3pm) and will end at lunchtime on Sunday 24th October. A full agenda will be issued nearer the time.

In consultation with the management of the venue, we will ensure that the event is arranged with all necessary Covid precautions in place.  The health and safety aspects have been fully discussed with the Young Workers’ Committee and further guidance will be issued on this in due course.  However, ultimately, it will be a matter for individuals to decide whether they are happy to take part in the event in person.

The arrangements for the cost of delegates will be in line with the process that has been used for many years, albeit reflective of current pricing.  The cost for Branches to send a delegate will be £300 and includes two nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation (The County Hotel, Neville St, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5DF) as well as all activities, buffet lunches and dinners.

For more information and to secure places for the weekend, Branches should email delegate names to Lauren Townsend at: rodept@cwu.org as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Dave Ward

General Secretary
