Branch Newsletter - January

New Venue, New Date

Following discussions and motions at the branch's AGM in November 2018, and the meeting in January 2019, the committee have now booked a new venue to hold meetings. Our meetings from March onwards will be held at the Unity Theatre, 1 Hope Place, Liverpool, L1 9BG on the First Tuesday of every other month. Our first meeting in this new venue will be on Tuesday, 5th of March 2019 at 6:30pm. Meetings will be held in the bar area of the theatre, which the branch will have exclusive use of. The bar itself will be opened half and hour prior to, and half an hour after the meetings.

We do hope that you'll be able to join us at our new venue and on our new date. Don't forget that if you would like to attend the meeting by remote means (video call) you can arrange to do so by contacting the branch secretary on liverpool-general-branch@equity.org.uk at least two days before the meeting.

You can also e-mail the branch secretary to add an item to the agenda if there's something you believe that the branch should discuss.

ARC 2019

In May, the union's Annual Representative Conference will be held. For those unfamiliar with ARC, the conference is how members can make a difference and ask the union to do something they believe is important. At our meeting in March members will be able to suggest motions to the branch and the meeting will vote on which motion to send to ARC. In previous years we have send motions about equality, working class, and local castings. Each of these were passed at ARC. So, if you believe that there is something important that the union should be doing, please come along to our meeting in March and put forward a motion to the branch. If you're unable to attend the meeting, then please do contact the branch e-mail and we'll ensure that it gets put to the meeting.

To help you understand how motions are worded we've included some examples from previous years in the documents section of the branch website: http://equity.org.uk/liverpool-general-branch
