Accord aims to be transparent and accountable. Read our annual financial statements to members in compliance with Section 32A of Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992.
Under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, the union is required to submit an annual return to the Certification Officer for Trade Unions and Employers’ Associations in relation to the unions accounts and related matters for the previous financial year.
Within eight weeks of submitting the return the union is required to make a statement available to members containing information in respect of: total income and expenditure; how much of the income of the union for that period consisted of payments in respect of membership and salary and benefits provided to, or in respect of, each member of the executive, the president and the general secretary.
The statement must also include a form of words specified by section 32A(6) of the 1992 Act, explaining how a member who is concerned about a potential financial irregularity can complain.
Our financial statement for year ending 2019 has been prepared for members to understand the total income and expenditure of the union.
