NACO AGM Vote Next Steps

Colleagues, further to the recent announcement at the NACO AGM, as you will recall, an emergency motion was passed as follows:


"That the NACO Negotiating Team is allowed the opportunity to seek an Instrument Of Transfer with SATA/USDAW, and if that is completed, to allow the Executive to hold a ballot of its members to instigate a Transfer Of Engagements once all legal formalities are agreed."

What this means is that the AGM allows NACO to discuss a possible transfer into SATA - the Supervisory, Administrative and Technical Association, which is the Management Section of USDAW, with the ultimate aim of a transfer of membership into SATA/USDAW should any ballot of members agree this.

The NACO Executive feel that it is extremely important that members should have as much input into this discussion as possible.

We have therefore instructed the NACO Officials to visit all regions to engage with the membership to ensure we encapsulate all the views and opinions, so that these matters can be formally raised with the larger Union should any transfer of engagement be agreed.

We have set up meetings at the following locations all starting at 18:00hrs.

Please be aware with the exception of the Park Inn all other locations are Coop Group Distribution Centres.

13/7/17     Park Inn Hotel , Manchester , M4 4EW

17/7/17     Newhouse Depot , Edinburgh Rd , Motherwell , ML1 5SY

18/7/17     Birtley Depot , Unit 2 , Drum Park , Chester Le Street , DH2 1AE

19/7/17     Coventry Depot , Prologis Park , Coventry , CV6 4BX

20/7/17     Avonmouth Depot ,Poplar Way West ,  BS11 0YW

25/7/17     Thurrock Depot , Oliver Road , West Thurrock , RM20 3EN

As mentioned, should the talks lead to a constructive conclusion, members will get the opportunity to vote on any proposals before a transfer can take place.

Further regular updates will be sent to members, and also via the website, but the NACO Head Office can be contacted on 0161 351 7900 or via
