NEC brief update


We argued for the retrospective application of proscriptions to be re-considered - a significant number of NEC members did not agree to the process as implemented.

Due to NEC rules we’ll have to wait until Nov’s NEC meeting to bring changes

I asked Angela Rayner, given her new roles was she supportive of bringing back the Community Organising Unit. Angela stated how important community organising is, so I will follow this up for a more detailed response.

At the NEC Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic working group on ‘BAME’ structures, the #GV5 pushed for our Black & Asian Minority Ethnic Labour members to have the final say

Members need to feel included & represented, we’ll update on progress of this point ASAP

We requested parity on voting places for CLPs & TUs members to the National Black, Asian Minority Ethnic committee.

We pushed for regular equality data capture, to increase the visibility & self organisation of our Black, Asian Minority Ethnic members.

The plan is to have the inaugural Black, Asian Minority Ethnic conference this year & then every year in or around spring/summer

The Black, Asian Minority Ethnic conference WILL be able to suggest rule changes to the National Conference ✊🏽(similar to the Women’s Conference)
