Motions cannot be submitted without first holding either a members or representatives meeting to discuss motions to be submitted on behalf of your whole workplace.

Previous successful motions from the past four conferences can be searched on the Delegates Conference website on the resolutions tab. Please use this search function prior to submitting a motion to confirm whether your proposed motion has already been passed and is not needed to be submitted for consideration again.

Please note: given the timing of negotiations of the public sector EBAs (both general and mental health) motions for consideration of inclusion in the LOCs for these two EBAs will not be accepted for the 2024 conference.

For further information on submitting motions, please visit the motions page on your conference site.
