Local Government AGM 2021

22 April 2021 10:30am–12:00pm

Online meeting

The Regional Local Government service group AGM 2021 will be taking place virtually.

The AGM provides an opportunity to meet likeminded members working in local government and to discuss important issues affecting the sector.


All delegates and visitors to the Local Government AGM 2021 must be UNISON members of the service group from the South East region.

Branches are invited to register AGM delegates who will be able to participate in the election for contested positions and vote on key items of business.

The deadline for registering your delegates is 5pm on Thursday 1 April 2021.

Branches wishing to send additional members who are not delegates are invited to submit these for the AGM as virtual visitors. The deadline for visitors registering to attend is also Thursday 1 April 2021.

All registered delegates and visitors will receive a link to the meeting and paperwork for the AGM by email on 8 April.


Branches are invited to submit nominations to the Regional Local Government Committee, as well as various internal and external bodies, which will be elected at the AGM.

Nominations can be received from a local government branch. All nominees must themselves be service group members from the South East region.

Candidates may be asked to submit an election address of up to 500 words.

The deadline for nominations and for election addresses to be received is 5pm on Thursday 1 April 2021.

For any contested posts, all registered delegates will receive voting papers in advance of the AGM. The ballot will close before the meeting.

The results of any ballots and any uncontested posts will then have their elections ratified at the AGM.


Branches are invited to submit motions and rule changes to the current Regional Local Government Constitution.

The deadline for motions and rule changes to be received is 5pm on Thursday 1 April 2021.


UNISON recognises that in order for our members to fully participate, it may be necessary to make some adjustments so that we can ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, that everyone has the same opportunity to take part across our structures. For more on this, please see UNISON’s guidelines for virtual meetings.

If you require any adjustments to be made to facilitate your participation in a virtual meeting, please complete the Access Passport and return to Rob Bealey by 5pm on Thursday 1 April 2021. 
If you have previously completed an access passport and require adjustments for this meeting, please complete a new version of the passport and return it as soon as possible because of the differing requirements from a physical meeting compared to one being held online.
