Stop the attack on UNISON in Swindon

Swindon Council is setting its budget on Thursday 23rd February 2012.  Included in the budget is a proposal to cease the central funding of two part-time UNISON posts, Branch Secretary and Assistant Branch Secretary, who have their legitimate trade union facility time paid for in this way. 

The Council is proposing to make the two post-holders redundant. It is also proposing to cut 50% of the funding for the UNISON Service Conditions post.

This is a vindictive attack upon UNISON and the individuals concerned, and will be strongly resisted by UNISON.

To demonstrate opposition to this proposal, we are asking for support at a lobby of the Full Council Meeting on 23rd February, 6.00pm, Civic Offices, Euclid Street, Swindon SN1 2JH.

You can also email Swindon Council Leader Rod Bluh expressing your opposition to the proposals.
