North West Probation & CAFCASS Branch – Annual General Meeting 8th march 2012

The Annual General Meeting of this UNISON Branch will take place on:-

THURSDAY, 8th March, 2012 at 5.30 p.m. at Gujarat Hindu Society Centre, South Meadow Lane, Preston. PR1 8JN.

Travelling time to get to the meeting is allowed, and I have emailed all Heads of Service/HR asking that staff be facilitated to attend the AGM by being allowed sufficient time to get to the venue. A buffet is provided and expenses will be reimbursed.

Please find attached an agenda and other relevant paperwork. If you have any nominations or motions, these should be sent to the Branch Office as soon as possible

There are many negotiating and representational issues the Branch has been involved in since the last AGM. In order to continue representing your views accurately, it is of the utmost importance that as many members as possible attend. If you have any difficulties in respect of transport, or require assistance towards the cost of childcare, then please let us have details of your requirements.

Refreshments will be provided and travel expenses can be claimed.

Please complete the attached form ASAP and return it to the Branch Office. We need a minimum of 20 (twenty) members present for the meeting to be quorate. As previously stated, there are many issues on which we rely on your input, so it really is important that you attend.

We look forward to seeing you on the 8th of March.

Yours sincerely,

Vance Butterworth Kevin Allsop
Branch Secretary Branch Chair
