UNISON exists for its members: to protect them and defend them and their interests; to win recompense when things go wrong and to make sure they’re treated fairly and equally. Three recent wins in just the past month show just what being in UNISON can mean for public service workers.
Sometimes it’s useful to remind ourselves of just what UNISON members, activists, and services and staff can do. Read the full story on the UNISON website.
UWS branch of UNISON is holding a recruitment event today (Tuesday 25 October 2016) at Paisley Campus, with the offer of a free tea/coffee and cake.
If you know someone at UWS Paisley Campus who has been thinking of joining UNISON then please encourage them to come along and find out about the benefits of membership to one of the UK’s largest trade unions.
We will have a stand in the new student hub area from 8.30-11am and then in A Block from 11.30-2pm, so drop-by to say hello and bring a non-member colleague along for a chat.
