Next week is national recruitment week for UNISON. All week, all across the UK, we will be working hard to highlight the benefits of being involved in UNISON. For around the cost of a cup of coffee a week, you can become part of the largest public sector union in the UK. As a member of UNISON you will receive support and advice, particularly when job security is a real concern. So whether you are already a member or are yet to join, why not come visit us to find out how to make the most of UNISON membership?
Monday 11 March – Friday 15 March
Come and visit our stall in ‘The Street’, EII Building in the Castle Complex (all day) and at Winchester Discovery Centre in Jewry Street (12 – 2pm and 5 – 7pm).
Friday 15 March, 12.30 – 5.30pm
We will be holding an information surgery with our affinity partners in the Chute Room, EII South, 1st floor. Refreshments will be available, so please take this opportunity to drop in and find out about the special offers and discounts available to UNISON members and their families.
Hampshire UNISON is asking existing members to do all they can to help recruit colleagues to the union during the week. The current period is perhaps the most challenging one that trade unions have faced in a generation, with major battles ahead over pay and further cuts to the services we deliver. The more members we have, the more effective we will be when it comes to defending our members’ jobs, pay and the vital public services we all rely on.
