A welcome note from our Branch Secretary

I am delighted to take this opportunity to welcome you all to the website of the Northern Ireland Combined Branch, and I would sincerely encourage you to take the time to access this site to ensure you are kept up to date on all the information posted here, and in particular the information you feel that is most likely to be of benefit to you personally. The site will contain Branch reports, Letters to Branches from CWU Headquarters, National Agreements along with links that will take you to various pages with different types of advice and guidance that will assist in your everyday working life. The site is designed to bring you closer to your union; to keep you informed, and ultimately to afford you the opportunity to be able to contact us with any questions you may have and also to have an input with your ideas in helping to bring our union another step forward. This initiative has been a long time coming, and immense credit has to go to the NI Combined Branch Working Group for the excellent work they have done in constructing this site, and now that we are here, we all have the opportunity to reap the benefits the site provides. I should also make you aware, this new website has coincided with the opening of the new CWU Northern Ireland Regional Centre situated on the whole of the first floor of the Unite Building on the Antrim Road, Belfast, and the only thing I can say is that, your Branch is continually progressing, and with your solid support we can move from strength to strength. Please remember, this is your site, this is your union, so let's pull together and make it work for us all.
