The Union all over the news!

I was just going to bed when Heather Wakefield appeared on Newsnight speaking up for local government workers and that got me thinking about what we should be doing with this high profile.

Sometimes, clearly, you issue a press release and it gets covered.

Here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and – well you get the point I am sure.

UNISON has the opportunity to maximise media coverage because of the vote by our local government members in favour of strike action over pay in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

I’ll be back to this topic again – for now I want to make the point that we need to step up recruitment activity among workers affected by this pay dispute. If you are a local government worker reading this and are not already a member – join now!
