National Shop Stewards Network Conference 24 June

Conway Hall, London 11am to 4.30pm

Join members from other unions to discuss the fightback against the Tory cost-of-living squeeze and their anti-union laws!

Napo is affiliated to the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN).

This Network was initiated by the RMT in 2006 and now has national support, besides ourselves, from Unite, CWU, NUJ, NUM, POA, BFAWU and the FBU, as well as individual branches in these and other unions and many trades councils. This will be their sixteenth national conference.

Napo’s National Official, Annoesjka Valent, will be speaking alongside NIPSA General Secretary Carmel Gates, BFAWU General Secretary Sarah Woolley, POA General Secretary Steve Gillan, and GMB Officer Gary Palmer.

“The last year has proven that striking works, but the cost of living squeeze on workers is unrelenting. Alongside how to build solidarity with the current strikes, key questions for discussion at the Network conference will therefore include:

  • How can we be better prepared for inevitable future strikes?
  • It is possible to ‘all strike together’ in a 24-hour general strike?
  • How can we fight the threat from the latest Tory undemocratic anti-union Strike Bill?

Hundreds of thousands of workers have been on strike for the first time. Many hundreds if not thousands have become workplace reps or stewards for the first time. Our conference will bring together active rank-and-file trade unionists – both new and longstanding – from across the whole of the trade union movement. All union members are very welcome to attend and to fully participate in the discussion.”

Attendance fee is £6. You can register on the day at conference or email the NSSN in advance via info@shopstewards.net

  1. I would like to attend the Conference on June 24th 2023 at Conway Hall, London, but I am not a member of a trade union. Can I still attend?
