Good debate and response at radiographers' union conference

Delia Hazrati, Society of Radiographers southeast region vice chair and conference delegate (personal capacity)

This year's annual delegate conference of the Society of Radiographers was held in Leeds from 23 to 25 April.

Socialist Party radiographer delegates held a stall outside the conference, sold a dozen copies of the Socialist and had petitions against the introduction of NHS 'sustainability and transformation plans'.

There was a good response from delegates and members of the public. There were good debates in the conference itself on 'the right to protest', employment tribunal fees and non-gender specific uniforms.

A motion to scrap tribunal fees in line with TUC policy was unfortunately lost and was oddly not supported by the leadership. A fantastic motion from a young delegate on climate change was passed calling for the removal of the profit-driven economic system to stop environmental disaster. It demanded rapid conversion to renewables, nationalisation of the energy generating and transport systems, and an integrated environmental plan of production based on democratic public ownership of the economy.

An emergency motion to not accept the NHS pay review body's derisory 1% pay rise was won on the floor but defeated in a card vote.
