“The NHS will last as long as there are folk left with faith to fight for it.”
(Nye Bevan)Barnet UNISON loves our NHS and sends solidarity to all NHS workers.
Our branch will be marching and we are encouraging our community to join us.
The NHS is in a serious crisis and NEEDS our support.
Our branch in its own small way is hosting an event on
Saturday 25 February called “Sing your Heart out 4 the NHS”
It will start off with some NHS workers explaining about the attacks the NHS are facing and why we must join the national NHS demonstration on 4 March

Several of our Barnet UNISON members will be singing in solidarity for the NHS & all of the staff.
The singers will be supported by the Hit n Run band.
It looks like it will be a great night out so why not join us in solidarity for the NHS.

Venue: Midland Hotel, 29 Station Road,
Hendon, London NW4 4PN
After the referendum unite to demand…
No More Austerity – No To Racism – Tories Must Go
Barnet Meet Up : Saturday the 16th of July
11.30am Argyll Street
[Beside Oxford Circus Tube]
& look out for Our Banner.
The Tories have been plunged into crisis by the result of the EU referendum. David Cameron will soon be gone. The Tories will use Brexit to whip up anti-immigrant racism and accelerate their austerity policies and attacks on living standards. George Osborne has already threatened an emergency budget which will hit ordinary people hard.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. The Tories are weaker and more divided than they have ever been. It looks likely that an early General Election will have to be called when Cameron steps down. However people voted in the referendum, we now need to unite and take to the streets to demand an end to austerity policies, to stand up to anti-immigrant racism and show our solidarity with refugees and migrants.
This demonstration, called by the People’s Assembly and Stand Up to Racism, is the positive and united response to the political earthquake on 23 June.
We are not spectators while the Tories fall out. We must make ourselves participants in shaping the future.
We will not let racism grow; we demand an end to austerity.

Barnet LG Branch Nominates John Burgess for General Secretary
Our Branch Executive Committee met on Monday to decide who we should nominate for General Secretary.
There was a brief discussion as members were clear about the candidates requesting our nomination. Ultimately people felt let down by the current leadership and desperate to see a change. Our branch is well aware of the work and leadership John has given to our branch and our campaigns and so we felt he is by far the best person for the job.
With that in mind, the committee agreed voted unanimously to nominate John Burgess.
In the wake of Barnet “Commissioning” Councils plans to outsource 81% of the current workforce Barnet UNISON organised a poll of its members.
The Poll produced the following results:
87% of our member’s want to remain employees of the London Borough of Barnet UNISON.
61% of our members said as a result of knowing they could be outsourced they are seriously looking to find employment elsewhere.
96% of our members expressed concern about being outsourced.
81% of members said morale was bad in their workforce.
