Good Morning, we were all up and in the pool and sauna for 7am this morning, to get refreshed before breakfast at 8.30 then off to conference for start at 9.30 ?. It’s a bit murkey this morning and sea not as attractive as yesterday – so definitely no paddling !!!!
So now we have arrived at Conference and First motion this morning is motion 12 ‘It needs to be stopped ‘ speakers relating to disabled people experiencing domestic violence and the cuts and removal of services. Sign posting to the UNISON domestic violence handbook. Very emotional speakers on this issue from women members. National women’s committee policy is to support – motion carried.
