About Greater Manchester ARMs
The ARMs Greater Manchester group is open to all ARMs members living in the Greater Manchester area and currently has more than 400 members. It was established in March 2016 as a way of bringing the union closer to you and providing a more accessable forum for your views. The group is welcoming, friendly and informal.
We support the campaigns of our own and other trade unions and also issues relevant to the wider community. Examples of our activity include supporting the PCS pay campaign; campaigns against office closures; anti-fracking campaigning; local hospital campaigns, the RMT dispute for guards on trains and attending the rally in Manchester against the visit of President Trump.
We also have social and learning activities which members are welcome to join in. These are publicised on our Facebook page. Examples of the things we have done include history walks around Manchester; meals out; afternoons of music and chat; attending folk concerts and arranging computer courses.
The committee meets most months and we have members' meetings four times per year. Guest speakers at the members' meetings have included PCS senior officials; shadow ministers and shadow secretaries of state; speakers from other unions campaigns; Unionlearn; PCS Credit Union; and the Chorley Hospital campaign.
If you want to get involved please contact the secretary, Jacquie Hadfield, by email firstname.lastname@example.org
