This site is being updated. However because of the immense amount of material on the site it is taking me some time. When the new site is populated this site will be closed and the updated site will be launched. In the meantime new information is only being added to the new site . You can see how the updated site is coming along here.
Any member of Prospect is welcome to register to use this site. We will attempt to verify your membership and correspond with you if I have any difficulty doing so. If you are a member of a branch other than those that make up the Greater London Co-ord Committee it may take me a little longer to verify your status.
You are welcome to and encouraged to contribute to this site and rather than have pages of legalise carefully defining terms & conditions, as is common on many websites and which are seldom read, here are just a few simple rules.
We ask that you recognise that any contribution that you make is public and that you respect other users of the site. We ask that you are not offensive and that you do not use offensive or sexist/discriminatory language, nor should you promote such causes that the union may consider offensive or inappropriate.
Whilst much of what the union does to protect the interest of its members has, by necessity, to be carried out in the political arena the union is non-party political. For the purposes of this website we interpret non-party political to mean that the union does not give its support to any political party neither does it campaign for or against any political party. The government of this country is normally drawn from one political party or another, the exception being the regime currently in power that is drawn from two political parties in coalition. This means that in campaigning on a particular issue or against a particular policy of the government, inevitably party political policies become inextricable part of the arguments. However we believe there is a clear distinction between campaigning for or against a particular policy and campaigning for or against a political party.
We had hoped to adopt a very light touch in ensuring that the comments on this website complied with the policy outlined and just rely on someone bringing to my attention dubious comments. However, as a result of experience and of individuals trying to hijack the discussion for party political ends we have instituted a system whereby we have to approve comments before they are published. I am sorry for this and it does cause me extra and unwanted work. We will review this policy from time to time.
We reserve the right to decline to publish or to remove any comments and/or users that do not follow these simple rules.
The views expressed on this website are not necessarily those of Prospect the union, the Connect sector of Prospect, the Greater London Coordination Committee or any of the branches that make up the GLCC.
