UNISON to visit work places after Suffolk County Council drops staff pay cut

Published on 18 January 2019 by UNISON Suffolk County Branch

UNISON's huge victory in getting the Suffolk County Council to drop its proposed pay cut made the news across Suffolk with articles appearing in the papers, as well as interviews with UNISON on BBC Radio Suffolk. This proves what a major success we have had.   

Whilst that particular problem may have gone away, there are other things we need to discuss with our members. Plus of course, making time to talk to people who aren’t currently in UNISON (yes – there are still some of them out there!) about why they need to join us.

So we have planned a few more visits in workplaces over coming weeks.   

We can’t afford to become complacent!

The first set of dates and times are listed below, and here’s why you should come and see us:

  • We’ll have freebies on offer, so if for no other reason, just come and get a free UNISON pen, trolley token key ring, or car ice-scraper. 
  • Come and find out about the different types of rep and Officers roles that are available – and the paid time off and training you get if you take on one.
  • Send your non-UNISON member colleagues down to see us.  Or even better – bring them with you.
  • Got something work related on your mind that you want to run past someone? Regional Staff and Branch Officers will be on hand to listen and advise in complete confidence.

Just come along and say hello!

If your workplace isn’t due for a visit then contact the branch and we will see what we can do about setting one up. We look forward to seeing you soon.
