Unison Finances. Prepare for the review

It is important that those dealing with finances at branch level are ready and able to get involved with the current review of branch funding as this would affect the formula which determines what is kept at front line.

Branches currently get anything between 20% to 23% of all income collected, there are those who argue that more of that should be retained locally and others who feel that national should keep more. I think something in between the two would be the way forawrd but factors such as geographycal distribution of members, reserves and ability to have activists on release must also be taken into account. Whatever your views you must get involved with the regional meetings first which are scheduled to take place between April and May and national conference in June 2012 where decisions will be taken.
