BFAWU Emergency Measures over COVID19


As we work through the Coronavirus situation, we have had to make a number of changes to the way we work as an organisation, so that we can continue to support you as members but comply with the Government guidelines and keep our staff safe.

Our Regional Offices and Head Office are now closed and will remain so until we are given the go ahead to return back to normal. We are still contactable though. Whilst no one is in the offices we ask that if you need to ring us, you contact your FTO (please see the Contacts page of this site): if the query is an administration one, they will contact a clerk and will come back to you with a response.

We are fully contactable electronically and ask that, if you can, please communicate any administration queries to the Regional email addresses (again on the Contacts page), and they will then be answered as soon as possible. Please also send any other forms of communication electronically, either by scanning them over or taking a photograph, as this will speed up the process of dealing with them. We are still working on how to get correspondence out, as we have limited access to printing facilities, so we ask that you please bear with us if you are experiencing delays as there will be a few bumps in the road as we adapt.

We are setting up Facebook and WhatsApp groups to make sure we are in a position to keep in constant communication and, of course, your officials are always at the end of the phone.

Annual Conference 2020

After careful consideration, the Executive Council has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 conference. We currently have no new confirmed date yet, due to the unknown impact COVID19 will have on the nation, but the Executive will continue to monitor the situation both in terms of COVID 19 and Southport’s availability and update you accordingly
