Usdaw Annual Delegate Meeting

Date: 04 - 07 May 2025 Location: Winter Gardens, Blackpool
The Annual Delegate Meeting (ADM) is the biggest and most important event in the Union’s calendar.

The four-day conference brings together elected reps from across the UK and all Usdaw sectors to decide the Union's policies and priorities for the coming year.

It involves debates, and votes, on propositions, and statements from the National Executive Council as well as rule change proposals. A variety of high profile guest speakers also attend.

If you are an active rep you may want to participate in the ADM. Branches may also wish to send members as visitors. Find out more from your local Usdaw office.

What is the timetable?
  • A Preliminary Agenda Paper, including all the propositions will be circulated in late January to which branches can send amendments by end February.
  • At the same time branches will be asked to elect their delegates and visitors before mid April.
  • In April the Interim Agenda Paper will be sent out along with the Annual Report and National Executive Council Statements.
  • Two weeks later delegates and visitors credentials will be issued.
To get a flavour of previous ADMs you can check out the coverage in back copies of Arena and Network.
