When you click submit, the motion will automatically be submitted to the designated recipients, including UNISON South West regional secretary, Joanne Kaye.


If anyone experiences problems with online submission, email the region ( immediately to ask for a motion submission form, which is available in Word format.


How do you submit more than one motion?

To submit more than one motion, please select Motion 2, or, if necessary Motion 3 and complete all the relevant sections.  This is limited to three, as no more than three motions can be submitted by one submitting body at any regional council meeting.


There is a time out limit of 30 minutes, so ensure you have all the information needed to complete registration.


Do you need assistance with the content or composition of a motion?

Should any committee, group or branch need assistance with content or composition of a motion, the council officers are happy to provide advice and help ensure that the motion is a competent one.  Of course, this will not guarantee that any motion submitted will be agreed at Regional Council, but at least it should be competent and be able to be put forward for consideration. If anyone needs assistance, please tick the relevant box on the registration page.


Should this be the case, given that the motion in its final wording needs to be received by the deadline, you are advised to ensure the motion is submitted well in advance of the deadline, to allow time forthe officers to look at the motion, return it with their advice, and for you to resubmit the final version of the motion. 


I have a question about motions and it's not answered here.  Who do I contact?
