Nationally, the “National Organising Team” (NOT) has been established with a senior officer representing each region to co-ordinate the contribution regions will make to the new strategy for growth.
The National Organising team representative will take the lead in their region in finding new ways to grow the GMB at work. Collectively the National Organising Team will draw up recommendations for action across the union on behalf of the regions. At its first meeting in 2005 the National Organising Team drew up a checklist of recommendations for immediate action and the key messages that lie behind the new strategy. In the first few months the priorities have been clear:
In addition, the National Organising Team has adopted three national projects which all regions will focus on. These projects will remain in place until they have achieved a momentum of their own nationally, when new projects will be considered and adopted, but never exceeding three at any one time. The NOT will develop the industrial and organising strategy on these national projects with regional colleagues, National Officers and members. Regional and national recourses will be diverted to these projects to make sure they succeed.
