Happy New Year from your UNISON Learning Reps!
UNISON protesting against austerity
Your UNISON Learning Reps want to wish you a Happy New Year and best of luck for 2018! No doubt austerity will continue to bite and our members will feel the pinch of the pay cuts combined with rising prices. Meanwhile, there are constant threats to our jobs with privatisations and restructures.
In these circumstances, the learning and education agenda is becoming even more important. In 2018 we will be posting about all the offers and opportunities that UNISON can provide or signpost you towards. We also want to ensure that members are not being shortchanged in their workplaces and have the right access to training.
Happy New Year and get in touch with us for more information!
