TU Bill

Let us work for a better future

Take part in UNISON week 8 – 14 February 2016

Union members across the UK will be taking part in a week of action from 8 to 14 February.

Many of you will know about – and have taken part in – the campaign against the Trade Union Bill. We won some important changes to the Bill in the House of Commons, but at the time of writing this briefing we don’t know whether it will become law or not, or if any amendments have been made in the House of Lords.

What we do know is that, whatever happens with the Bill, this government is intent on hurting working people and undermining trade unions. We are campaigning to defeat the Bill, but we also need to make sure we are ready to deal with the consequences of it.

Which means we must get stronger. UNISON week is part of unions week, a national event organised by the TUC; it is the time to begin making our movement as resilient as possible. To do this we need to make sure that our current members feel proud to be in their union and that we spread the word and recruit new members. We know how important unions are – now let’s show everyone.

UNISON Angus Branch will be holding two events:-

12 to 2pm on Monday 8th February in Bruce House, Arbroath

12 to 2pm on Wednesday 10th February in Angus House, Forfar
