The pool fare operates to equalise the cost of attending the AGM across all attendees with amendments made to allow for income. In addition a significant contribution is made by the campaign. It is compulsory to participate if you are attending the AGM.
When you attend the AGM you will need to let us know of any travel expenses you have incurred in attending the AGM (receipts may be required) along with which income band you fit into. This information is used to calculate what is termed the ‘pooled fare’. This is the average travel costs which would have been paid if you added all the travel costs together and divided them between every attendee (adjusted for income) at the AGM. In short it means that someone with a higher income and lower travel costs (i.e. those who have traveled within London) will be asked to contribute money towards the pooled fare at the end of the AGM. From this pooled fare a significant percentage reimbursement is made to those attendees who have a lower income but who had to pay a lot to attend the AGM (i.e. those who have traveled from further afield).Monday, November 16, 2015 at 10:00 AMUnite Office in Flint, United Kingdom
