The austerity agenda being pursued by the Conservative led coalition Government has resulted in the loss of hundreds of jobs here in in Oldham, and we know there are more tough times ahead. But the local UNISON Branch continues to fight for the long term protection of terms and condition, negotiating with management through budget cuts and restructures, ensuring those members’ voices are heard.
Our stewards and branch officers have made a difference and will actively keep protecting our members rights, challenge unfair treatment and supporting members going through difficult times, as groups of workers or as individuals. Above all else, don’t forget the union is a collective of people all fighting for their rights at work……by definition, you are the union. Together we should stand up and fight.
