Thank You!

Wendy NicholsOn 30th November you made history. Every single UNISON member in North Yorkshire supporting the day of action has played their part. Thank You.

The day of action was the biggest seen in North Yorkshire with many members walking out and services closed. 161, more than half the county’s schools, were closed, with a further 61 partially closed. A number of libraries and day centres were also closed across the county. In Selby alone, the day centre, town hall, cemetery and community centre were all closed for the day.

Branch Secretary, Wendy Nichols gave a great speech at the large rally in Leeds, and spoke up for the many local council workers in North Yorkshire. Negotiations carry on today between government and the unions about our pensions. Let’s hope the strength of feeling yesterday can bring a better offer to the table. We all deserve dignity in retirement.
