UNISON Members Reject Offer

Dear Suffolk County Members

Please watch our new video in respect of the NJC pay ballot. Please share with non-members to get the message across that 1.75% pay offer is not acceptable and you deserve more for the recognition of your hard work through the pandemic.

It is vital we reach as many people as possible to show the strength and feeling of this pitiful offer. So please share talk with your friends and colleagues. If there not a member, then please get them to join and have their VOTE.

 A massive thanks you to our regional colleagues for putting this together, together we are stronger.

Kind Regards

Neil Bland

Branch Secretary
