This branch/chapel urges the NEC to introduce online joining immediately as the lack of this facility is discouraging people from joining the Union.
That this branch agrees to send a message of support to the PCS campaign to defend Kevin Smith, who has been victimised by the Home Office due to his trade union activity. It further agrees to circulate information about the matter around the Trades Council/Branch and to encourage members to sign the petition here . . . .
