Good afternoon members and Happy New Year.
We hope that you are all keeping safe and well.
We are writing to invite you to the Argyll and Bute Branch Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will take place online due to the current health protection measures.
The AGM is an important meeting for all members. It provides an opportunity for you to ask questions about the work of the union, you can see how branch finances have been used and you can help to set policy and agree priorities for the year ahead.
The AGM also provides an opportunity for you to elect officials to lead the branch and represent your interests.

Electing your Branch Officials and Workplace Reps
One of the most important functions of the AGM is to elect officials to lead the branch for the year ahead. A whole range of different jobs are available in the branch and each one of carries an important set of responsibilities. Whether you’re face to face with managers in negotiations, representing members in a disciplinary, or helping members with a welfare claim, all are necessary to create an effective union team.
We are seeking nominations for steward and officer positions, so please get in touch if you are interested.
We look forward to seeing you online.
