The GFTU’s Biennial General Council Meeting is taking place from 14th May to 16th May 2023 at Quorn Grange Hotel. There will be a Gala Dinner on Sunday 14th in the evening and a special concert of brilliant performers on May 15th after a barbecue in the evening.
Many of our supportive partners will be at the BGCM and it will provide a great opportunity for affiliates to become fully aware of the range of discounted services we offer that can really assist affiliated unions and their members in saving money and improving effectiveness. View our Win:Win partners here.
We will have a major statement on the economy from the GFTU Executive and this will be commented on by the Economics Editor of the Guardian Larry Elliott and Professor Costas Lapavitsas of SOAS University of London who share a strong commitment to supporting trade unions.
We will have important international guests to share some often overlooked issues with us.
The BGCM has taken a full report on the exceptional work of the GFTU over the last two years (see here) and importantly look forward to opening a new chapter with a new General Secretary Gawain Little and a new three person fundraising team who are seeking to create a new dynamic future and significant funding for our charitable trust. This will bring incredible new opportunities for our affiliates.
To express our commitment to nurturing a new generation of leaders, two young trade unionists Hannah Baker of the Pharmacists Defence Association and Quincy Raymond of the Communications Workers Union will chair part of our proceedings.
There will be many new opportunities opened at the BGCM as well as new educational offers and courses.
We look forward to seeing you at the event in May.
