Branch Update – April 20

Upcoming AGM

Don’t miss our upcoming Annual General Meeting on Wednesday April 27th from 12 to 1:30, in JHB301.

You should have received a second edition of our newsletter, containing information about the meeting. If not, you can access an electronic copy here.

Upcoming Ballot

You should all have received your ballot papers by now. They were sent in an envelope that looks like this:


If you have NOT received a ballot yet, please request a replacement here as soon as possible. In light of the Trade Union Bill, union ballot turnouts are under intense scrutiny and as such, it is extremely important that every single member uses their vote.

Looking for Volunteers 

Are you interested in getting more involved with our branch? We are looking for volunteers to act as ‘local contacts’ around Oxford Brookes. Local contacts are NOT expected to take up a formal role in representing members or meeting managers unless they later want to receive training and support to become a full representative of the union. But they can do a lot to raise the union’s profile by, for instance, distributing newsletters, putting up posters, and talking to non-members about the work of the branch.

More info here (factsheet): The_role_of_the_contact

If you are interested in such a role, please contact the Branch administrator. We would be delighted to have you on board!
