CWU Retired Members Conference 2017
End of Conference speeches
Both Tony Kearns Deputy General Secretary, and Dave Ward General Secretary spoke at the end of conference.
References to the passing of Motion 7 were made along with a call to fight back against the devastating policies of this Tory government.
Tony warned of the catastrophe awaiting the working people of this country as well as on his personal responsibility for the Retired Members section within the Union.
Dave made it clear in regards to Motion 7, that there was no attempt to reduce the involvement of the Retired Members, indeed he said that the Union needed the work of the Retired Members Section to move the Union forward and to help build a stronger Union for the fight to come against the potential loss of worker's rights and the destruction that this government policies and Brexit will cause.
