UWS Branch was delighted to win the silver award recently at the 2013 UNISON Scotland Communications Awards for Best Online Presence.
The awards were announced at the Scottish Council meeting in December 2013 and UWS Branch Secretary Keith Galbraith was there to pick up our silver award and a cheque for £100.
Keith commented: “It was a lovely surprise to hear UWS Branch being announced as the silver winner for our public website. Although we do have an intranet site and the ability to email colleagues, many members either don’t have access to email or a PC in their normal working day or the time. The website allows our members to access important branch information off-campus at their leisure.”
“Also, the fact that the website can be viewed on a PC, tablet or mobile and allows members to sign up to email notifications when something new goes on the site, makes sure that we are keep our members up-to-date with information and messages in a way that suits them.”
