Following on from last year’s success the TUC and UNISON have decided to make ♥ unions an annual event.

Once again it’s an opportunity to remind ourselves of the great things we do, and more importantly let potential members and the public at large know too.

By organing a branch event and using the resources provided you can help get the message out there: We’re stronger when we act in UNISON.

For ideas on how you can get involved download the Heart UNISON 2017 Guide.

There are lots of materials you can either download or order from the on-line catalogue and the campaign page on the national website.

Don’t forget to take a look at the TUC’s page too.

If you’re planning on holding an event don’t forget to let us know beforehand. Email us the details and we’ll help publicise it here on the website and on our social media accounts.
