The Tories Are Out Of Barnet!

To quote CeCe Peniston: “Finally!” (For those of us young enough to remember popular music of the 90s) https://youtu.be/xk8mm1Qmt-Y

On behalf of our members our Barnet UNISON Branch Secretary, John Burgess, has written to the newly elected Council Leader, Barry Rawlings, congratulating him on the success of the Labour Party and requesting to meet with him.

This is John making a statement to all Barnet UNISON members

For 20 years our members have had to deal with brutality of outsourcing and attacks on our time off to represent members. Our members in the Barnet Group, Capita, NSL, BELS and ISS will be expecting to see positive change for them. UNISON’s General Secretary, Christine McAnea has also been written to requesting her support for assistance in our discussions with Barnet Labour.

We’ll be providing regular updates to our members and our wider UNISON family and trade union community on our progress.

End.

Barnet UNISON nominates Local Government Service Group Reps

11th January Barnet UNISON Branch Executive agreed to nominate:
John McLoughlin, Mary Lancaster and our very own Anju Paul to stand in the Service Group Elections. We know they all work very hard and have a record of delivering for members and we believe these candidates will support this work at a National level effectively.

We need to build resistance to the Tory cuts and privatisation agenda at every level of our union with every means at our disposal both locally and nationally. We need to support the ability of branches to defend jobs, services, and conditions. We need strong and determined leadership at every level of our union.
