Get the vote out - one last push!!

I am on leave this week but, since I only have this leave to enjoy because previous generations built a trade union movement to fight for it, I retain an interest in the absolute priority for our Union today - maximising turnout in the pensions ballot.

Members of my branch can expect to hear from me this week - and it won't be a postcard.

UNISON Branches should send out reminder messages by bulk email, using the official template online at http://www.unison.org.uk/efocus/news_view.asp?did=7310.

Stewards should ensure they have spoken to every member, and branches should aim to speak to as many members as possible, whether by walking through workplaces or sitting at a telephone making calls.

We need everyone on this now.
