In his address, Murray outlined the work of the union to date and appealed for a unity of purpose and direction from the membership. His call was well received by the members who voted to set aside their previous motion from 2012 to leave SIPTU in favour of Equity UK. This decision was taken by the membership in conjunction with a number of strong policy motions to drive Irish Equity forward along with a commitment to continue to build on the collegiate relationship that has been established with Equity UK and to continue with the work of the Ireland/UK Action Group.
