The Unite rules conference meets every four years. This is when Unite members, nominated by their fellow members, are brought together to decide what changes need to be made to the rules of the union. This year, our rules conference is being held in the Brighton Centre, Kings Road, Brighton from 6 – 10 July 2015.
The current rules of Unite are contained in the rule book available to members here
The rules conference does not debate the policies of the Union.
