Fórsa conferences: Members decide
Fórsa puts its members and branches at the centre of decision-making. The union has paid officials to advise on policy and implement it. But it’s members who decide.
This is done through a biennial cycle of delegate conferences. A national union conference – with delegates from all Fórsa branches – takes place every two years. Divisional conferences – made up of delegates from branches in each of the union’s divisions – takes paces in the alternate year.
The national conference deals with issues that affect the entire membership, while the divisional conferences – one each for health, education, local government, services and enterprises, and the civil service – ensure that members and branches keep control of matters that affect their grades or workplaces alone.
In 2019 we will hold divisional conferences.
Journalists interested in covering one or all of our 2019 conferences should contact the Fórsa Communications Unit.
