Fair Pay Now - hopefully we'll get more than chocolate coins for our pay rise!

UNISON Reps and Santas little helpers gave out chocolate coins outside the Town Hall in Weston super Mare today along with leaflets telling members, non-members and members of the public about our pay claim. We were joined by a couple of Costa Coffee employees who were giving free samples from the new Costa in Dolphin Square. Here's a few photos:

We were also joined by Labour MP for Workington Sue Hayman, who was visiting a relative in hospital that evening.
