CWU Annual Conference

Two of the five days are spent discussing issues that are appropriate to the whole Union. Then Conference is divided into sectional and industrial groupings for the remaining three days.

All CWU members are entitled to attend Conference. If you wish to be a delegate, you must make an application through your branch.

Visitors, who are members of the union, may gain admission to the observers area by showing their membership card. Non member visitors should make a request for a visitors’ pass in writing and indicate the capacity in which they would be making the application.

The conferences are motion based. The closing date for motions is usually around the beginning of March for General Conference, and April for Industrial Conferences each year. Around 1000 delegates representing almost 200,000 members attend the conference.
