The Last AGM?

The United Co-operative Members' Meetings have come round again. This will be possibly be the last AGM as United Co-op. Unless there is a big U-turn on the merger with Co-operative Group (91 per cent in favour at the Merger Meetings in April). For someone who has sat through Norwest, Norwest Pioneers, and then United Norwest the future meetings being a region of a national organisation may take on different issues.

Tuesday 15 May Wythenshawe Forum Leisure, Forum Square, M22 5RX
Monday, 21 May Manchester People’s History Museum, Pump House, Bridge Street M3 3ER
plus other meetings in Stockport, Salford, Rochdale & etc - see list
Our Chair Paul Murphy will be giving the Manchester Area Co-op Party report to the Manchester meeting. Plus there are elections to the Board - couldn't help noticing a few familiar names as candidates. Apparently canvassing to be elected is banned, so we'll write no more.
