Yorkshire Ridings General Branch
Equity has a vital network of branches throughout the UK which give members a voice in the union and much more. Branches hold regular meetings in their local area and all members and student members are invited to attend these to share views and experiences, discuss issues that are of importance to them and put proposals to Equity's ruling body - the Equity Council. Branches also organise a programme of social events and raise money for local charities.
If you are an Equity member or student member based in the area you are able to join the branch (no charge) so please get in touch with the Branch Secretary. If you are a member or student member visiting the area you are very welcome to drop into the next branch meeting and get to know some of your fellow members.

Yorkshire Ridings General Branch Annual Representative Conference 2013 Motion
At its February meeting Yorkshire Ridings General Branch agreed to submit the following motion to the 2013 ARC:
"This ARC is concerned that the new structure of the Union, with the elimination of the English Area Committees and Specialist Committees including Walk-Ons, disadvantages the many members who relied on these committees to represent their specialist area of work.
This ARC calls upon Council to ensure that these members are not denied a voice in the Union in this way and urges Council to put structures in place to monitor the representation of these groups."
The Branch agreed to submit two further motions on Induction and Training for Branch Officers and Committee members and Election procedure for General Branch Officers to Equity's Council. The Induction and Training motion has been approved by Council, but unfortunately the motion on Election procedure for General Branch Officers was rejected by the Council. The full text of these motions can be viewed here or downloaded here.
