UNISON MEMBERS VOTE YES FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION OVER PENSIONS
Over 75% of members who cast a vote in the ballot voted YES for industrial action on 30th November.
The branch is now preparing for the day of action and we are asking members to take part in picketing, even if only for an hour, and / or attend one of the marches and rallies planned in the South West. We will need pickets in the morning and late afternoon at:
Somerset House, Castlewood and Weston General Hospital.
Please contact the branch office if you are interested in helping out. It is really important that our members are visible on the day of action, so pleaswe make every effort to help out.
The branch will have a hardship fund for members who take action and face particular financial hardship through loss of pay through taking part in the strike. Please download our hardship fund application form. These will be considered in early December and payments made before Christmas.
