Next ATUC Delegates' Meeting on Wed 7th December at 7.30pm. Please come along.

The next ATUC Delegates' meeting will be held on Wednesday 7th December 2016 at 7.30pm in ATUC premises, John Londragan House, 22A Adelphi, Aberdeen. All delegates and associates are warmly invited to attend.

Our speaker at this month's meeting will be from Grampian Credit Union.We then have our usual packed agenda, which this month includes a preliminary consideration of motions and delegates for next year's STUC Congress. We also have an updated report on the plans for the 150th Anniversary celebrations for the ATUC in 2018.

ATUC President, Kate Ramsden said, "We are hoping for our usual good turn-out at the meeting as we come to the end of 2016 and look towards the New Year.

 "I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our delegates, affiliates, associates and all those who read this blog, "Greetings of the Season" and all our best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year. This goes out especially to our union members delivering essential services over the holiday period."

Kate added, "We have had a very successful year again and the events that we organise throughout the year have gone from strength to strength.

"Our St Andrew's Day March and Rally was particularly inspiring and moving as people from so many different ethnicities and religions joined us as marchers and speakers to celebrate the huge diversity in the North East of Scotland. Many thanks to all those who came along and who contributed to its success.

"Thanks also to the wonderful musicians and poets who performed in the Lombarda after the Rally. That too was a great event.
