BTUC Delegates Meeting Thursday the 2nd April 2020

Due to the Corona Virus pandemic all further delegates meeting will be online and not at our usual venue at the Council House.

This Thursday’s meeting will start with tribute to the front line workers in our National Health and Social care services.

The meeting will start at 7:00 pm, with Dave Rogers from the Banner theatre leading the tribute to the dedication of our care workers.

Dave Room from the National Education Union will speak on the challenges faced during the pandemic. Su Lowe from the UNITE union will share the experiences of UNITE members engaged in keeping the public safe

This will be an opportunity for us to share and discuss what we feel our governments should have done in preparation of the pandemic and what should be done now to ensure we remain safe through this crisis.
