Branch Update – May 2014

May 15th, 2014

We have noted a number of new membership applications are being received from folk who are in serious trouble with their employer – they could and should have joined when they started their employment. Non-members usually say that the unions do nothing for them and are often the first to criticise us – until they need us.

UNISON members fought hard for the Terms and Conditions we have today but these are now under serious threat. Please emphasise the good work UNISON is doing and encourage your colleagues to Join UNISON.
