Branch Christmas Competition 2019 - Results

16th December 2019

Christmas TreeThe branch held our prize draw for our fantastic Christmas Competition and we're pleased to announce we now have our five prize winners for this year.

The prizes this year were:

  • an amazing Apple iPad Pro (10.5" WiFi 256Gb) Space Grey.
  • our ever popular Dinner and a Show for Two (x2)
  • and our Luxury Christmas hampers (x2)

Our prize winners were drawn by our independent adjudicator on Monday and were:

  • First Prize:  Janice Forsyth
  • Second Prizes:  Margaret Price & Gavin Murison
  • Third Prizes:  Jayne Marooth & Liz Law

Our competition this year was a maze members were asked to help Rudolph find his way through to get his Christmas present.  The options were A: Teddy Bear, B: Wheely Duck or C: Helicopter.

There were a lot of maze runners out there who got the right answer - the correct answer was A: Teddy Bear.

Congratulations to all our winners, and to everyone out there, have a Happy Christmas and New Year!

Vote NOW for Better Pay!

20th September 2019
 
Vote YES for Strike Action - Have your say on HE Pay
 

Why you should vote YES
for strike action...

The offer is a real terms pay cut
  - The pay offer just 1.8% (with lowest paid staff between 1.8 and 3.65%)
 
- Find out how much you have lost using our PAY CALCULATOR

Our pay claim was much higher than the offer
  - The joint union claim was for 3% +RPI, or a minimum increase of £3,349

UNISON believes we should reject the offer and vote YES for strike action

Your ballot papers should be with you already - if you haven't received them please contact UNISONDirect on 0800 0 857 857

 EVERY VOTE COUNTS 

 We need the strongest possible mandate to show the employers the strength of feeling about the pay cuts in HE 

Also, under new Tory legislation, over 50% of members eligible to vote must return their ballot for the vote to be valid.  Don't leave it to one side - return it immediately!

Make sure all your friends and colleagues vote YES for strike action.
