Get your 2016 UNISON Diary!

UNISON 2016 DiaryAt this time of year the branch would usually send out the annual diary, however after feedback from last year's AGM this year we've decided that we won't automatically send out diaries.

Instead we'll have some of our snazzy new UNISON 2016 Diaries ready you to pick up from our regular stalls, and your local stewards.  This means that we don't need to order as many diaries this year, so they will be distributed on a "first come, first served basis".
