Finances remain healthy
Jackie has not been elected to the central executive committee.
Social Media: Activity was up on Twitter and Facebook. Adrian had been forwarding stuff from the various labour party candidates. The monthly newsletter had been sent out and had received more openings than usual.
Workplace/Accompanying Reps Reports:
There have been some problems with the merger between Corby and Kettering street services. This will take some time before things settle down. It looks like we will have a new rep in the Robinson Way depot. Rachelle is working on a recognition agreement with Kettering.
Asda have imposed the new contract which is very disappointing but as union membership is relatively low and there was little interest in taking industrial action it was probably inevitable.
Maggie had attended the regional council meeting. She said it was very low key and felt that it should have been cancelled in light of the general election.
It was agreed to make an additional payment to the foodbanks we support as Christmas can be a difficult time of year for them.
