Like many other organisations, UNISON has had to cancel many of its conferences and meetings as a result of COVID-19.
But the UK’s biggest union has democracy at its heart and still wants its members to be involved.
With this in mind, UNISON’s disabled and LGBT+ members have organised a series of virtual events in place of their usual conferences – online and live.
We will be holding the following events:
Disability Live! – 19 to 24 October.
LGBT+ Live! – 13 to 15 November.
There will be a variety of online sessions that members can participate in during the events.
These events are only open to UNISON members. To attend Disability Live! you must be a disabled member of UNISON. And to attend LGBT+ Live! you must be an LGBT+ member of UNISON. This is in line with UNISON’s commitment to self-organisation for under-represented groups.
In order to make Disability Live! as accessible as possible, please let us know if there are any adjustments you will need to allow you to take part in a virtual event.
To register your interest in attending either event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as follows:
Subject heading – the event you would like to attend (if both, please send separate emails)
In your email – please provide:
- Your name
- Your membership number
- Your branch name
- Any reasonable adjustments you need to participate
The registration deadlines are:
Disability Live! – Thursday 8 October at 5pm
LGBT+ Live! – Thursday 5 November at 5pm
Once you’ve been registered for an event, you will be sent an email giving details of the virtual sessions you can attend, so you can register for these individually. You can attend as many or as few as you like.
So get active! Email email@example.com today to register to attend.
