South West Labour Link forum 2018

16 – 18 March 2018

UNISON Croyde Bay holiday resort, Braunton EX33 1QB

The South West Labour Link forum 2018 will be held at Croyde Bay from Friday 16 March to Sunday 18 March 2018.

This is a perfect opportunity for UNISON members to strengthen our historic link with the Labour party, to get involved in local and national campaigning and learn how to successfully work with the Labour party back in your branch to further UNISON campaigns.

It’s also a chance to learn from colleagues about how to stand for elected office yourself and how UNISON can support you in that.

How to attend the South West Labour Link forum 2018
  • Each branch is allowed to send two delegates, at least one of whom must be a woman.
  • Delegates must be individual members of the Labour party
  • Nomination forms are now with branch secretaries and branches will be agreeing their delegates in the coming weeks.
  • In addition each branch can send observers who must be APF members but not necessarily individual members of the Labour Party

The format of the weekend is as follows:

Friday 16 – Evening meal and social event to welcome all attendees

Saturday 17 – Guest speakers – training – political update – evening meal

Sunday 26 – Formal business of the forum – elections for the regional Labour Link committee, election of UNISON delegates to Labour party conference, and motions.


There is no cost to your branch for attending so get in touch with your branch secretary, or email to find out more and register to come along to what promises to be a great event.
