Go For Growth campaign/Stars in our schools
Thank you for everyone who helped recruit members during our November ‘Go For Growth’ campaign, the annual drive to get more colleagues to join.
UNISON exists for its members and the more members we have in our family, the stronger voice is when negotiating and bargaining with employers.
We held a number of events and drop-ins at various workplaces and we did our best to get the message out.
Thanks to all the reps who manage to get people to sign-up and a big thank you to Louise, our superb branch organiser , for organising everything.
We also celebrated StarS in our schools, our annual celebration of school support staff. We had eight schools take part which is really pleasing.
Support staff are vital to the running of our schools and ensuring our children get the education they deserve. A big thank you to all who took part.
Finally, I want to wish all our members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I know 2019 has been a really tough year for everyone in public services but I am proud our union, locally, regionally and nationally, has been a strong voice in speaking up for our members and the good that public sector workers do.
Ben Greenwood, Chair
