CONSULTATION REMINDER: FOR SUSTAINABLE GROWTH IN THE NON-RECOGNISED SECTOR
Consultation link: https://survey.alchemer.eu/s3/90445009/Securing-the-future-of-the-CWU
The purpose of this LTB is to remind Branches which have not already done so to please complete and share the above consultation, which was originally sent in LTB 157/22 on 4th April.
In line with conference policy we have launched a major listening and engagement exercise within every region to encourage thinking about the barriers we face when it comes to organising in areas where CWU doesn’t yet have recognition and to share ideas about how we can best make changes to overcome these. Input is welcomed from every branch, officer and representative.
The future of the CWU as a strong, independent trade union ultimately depends not only on our ability to recruit and retain members where we have recognition but also on prioritising efforts to identify areas for new membership growth and broader union expansion where there is currently no union recognition.
Work will continue, following March’s National GROW Campaign, to ensure that an ongoing culture of recruitment and organising is embedded across all union structures and remains a high priority. Follow-ups to ensure the 13 Measures of Success workbooks are being completed as required by all branches will also provide the union centrally with a wealth of invaluable data and information to help us further shape what ‘future-proofing’ the CWU really needs to look like.
The consultation link will remain live until Friday 10th June, at which point we will collate all responses and present a report of the findings and draft proposals to the NEC, before holding a National Briefing to present these union-wide. Please take 10 minutes as soon as possible over the next month to complete the consultation, have your say, and share the link with any and all interested parties within your branch for their input too.
