Nominations open for One Weekend awards

Last year’s branch of the year receive their gong

UNISON Eastern’s One Weekend hosts our annual branch and activist award, a celebration of the fantastic work that goes on in the region.

Of course anyone giving up their time and energy to make life better for their colleagues is an award-winner, but we like to pay a special tribute to the branches and activists that have gone that extra bit further to campaign, champion equality and more.

So if you’ve been inspired, you can make nominations for

  • Campaigning branch of the year,
  • Health and safety branch of the year,
  • Communications branch of the year,
  • Activist of the year,
  • Equalities activist of the year,
  • Young activist of the year.

It’s then up to the lay reps on the regional finance, development and organisation committee (FDO) to pick a winner that will be revealed at the One Weekend in May.

Awards are also up for grabs for recruiting branch of the year and learning branch of the year based on UNISON records. And the FDO will pick and overall branch of the year from all the nominations received.

Nominations have now closed. The winners will be revealed at the One Weekend and then published online.
