Branches and Regional Councils are also invited to submit motions for the agenda of the Conference which should be relevant to the concerns of LGBT members throughout the transport industry and must conform to Union policy. All motions must be received at Unity House by 18 April 2018 at the latest.  In addition to the above, invitations would be welcome from Branches and Regional Councils to host the 2019 Conference.
