General Election


Dear friend,
The general election is over and I just wanted to write to you and thank you for all you did on behalf of UNISON before and during the campaign.

We are all still digesting the impact of the result however what we know already is that a Conservative majority government at Westminster is not what I or many in UNISON were hoping for. But the country has spoken. Our task now remains the same as it would be whichever party had won.

We will continue to fight to protect our members' rights, their jobs, and their pay. We will stand up to ministers if they put our members' jobs and livelihoods at risk, or they threaten those things we all care about – the NHS, the public services we all rely on and the quest for a fairer society.

A strong union movement has delivered so much for our society – and together we can do so much more in future. That’s why recruitment and organising remains such an important priority for all of us.

Whatever happens over the coming months, one thing is certain, we will need to stand together: strong, united and in unison.

With very best wishes

Dave Prentis
UNISON general secretary
