The Committee would like introduce it's new Political Officer, John Parry, to the Branch.
Croeso - Welcome
The CWU North Wales and Chester Combined Branch covers some of the most spectacular scenery to be found in Wales.
The area includes the beautiful Snowdonia
mountains, the coastal beaches of Anglesey, Rhyl, Llandudno,
Colwyn Bay and the Llyn peninsula.
The CWU North Wales and Chester Combined Branch was formed from the former North Wales Engineering and the Dee Valley Branches in September 2003. The Branch represents some 780 members across the Branch area.
Please note the NON-MEMBERS - BRANCH POLICY
The Branch policy is now not to take up personal cases or issues for non-members; or problems for members that happened before they joined. We have though usually given verbal advice to non-members on the understanding that they will join the union. Unfortunately even this last service is now being abused by non-members. We are receiving an increasing number of calls from non-members seeking advice but who then do not join. Some have even rung on a number of occasions.
The Branch Committee has therefore agreed the policy that no assistance or advice will be given to any non-member until an application for membership has been received, and they have been a member for at least 1 month prior to their requiring support.
The above decision had been deemed necessary because the time allowed for Branch Officers to carry out their duties is calculated by BT on the number of BT members in the Branch. This time is limited.
From 21/04/2013 until 29/04/2013 the main office will be not be manned due to conference. Please use the following contacts in the fist instance.
