LU Fleet branch organisation repot 2009

organiseThe Regional Council Secretary wrote to all branches, asking for their assessment of their branch’s work during 2009, and suggesting that they might address the following points:
- whether your membership grew or shrunk during 2009, and why you think this is
- any problems you have had filling reps’ positions within the branch’s area
- how effective your branch was during any industrial action in your area last year
- what recruitment activities you have organised
- any comments on how the union, either nationally or regionally, has helped (or not helped!)
- ideas for future improvements


LU Fleet branch report

Membership up mainly due to sterling work at Stratford Market Depot and Distribution Services.

All reps positions filled.

Industrial action well supported but there seems to be a tendency when arranging meeting to assume that most reps are full time release which in my branch this is not the case.

We carry out a full audit of members twice a year. Following each joiners and leavers report any changes are e-mailed and texted to the local rep for investigation.

I would suggest that membership officers be given log ins to allow them to better carry out thier role and be allowed to attend the courses concerning the membership system that are run at Doncaster.
