AFTER THE ELECTION – WHAT NOW FOR TRADE UNIONS?

Friday 13 December 2019 was a bad day for anyone who wanted to see an end to Tory austerity – we are now faced with Boris Johnson having a large majority in parliament and even the first Queen’s speech outlined the planned attacks on the right to strike, going back on a promise to increase the Living Wage and worsening immigration rules. So as trade unionists we face a challenge. This meeting is a chance to discuss how that result came about, and what we can do to resist these attacks.

Branch Elections Nominations open Monday 13 January

 
Each year, we elect our UNISON stewards and Branch Officers, and the election period opens on Monday. As well as encouraging those of you who have already been a steward or officer over the last year to stand again, this is a really good opportunity for anyone else to get involved/stand in the elections. A separate email with details of how to do this and nomination forms will go out this week, so please keep an eye out for it and seriously consider getting more active in your union branch.  Continue reading

2020 will be the year we must also start to organise against Johnson’s government.

The results of the General Election will be a shock and disappointing for many of us. Although UNISON members will have voted for different parties, as the Branch Secretary of a public sector trade union, certainly I was hoping to see a different result.
 
Over the next few days and weeks I’m sure we will have lots of discussions about how this result came about, but Camden UNISON has a proud history of resisting austerity and standing up against racism and other discrimination. There are members in the branch who helped organise opposition to Thatcher’s government in the 1980s, and whilst we’re having those discussions about this vote, 2020 will be the year we must also start to organise against Johnson’s government.
 
If you want to find out how you can get involved just get in touch by emailing unison@camden.gov.uk as there’s going to be lots for us to do!
 
In solidarity,

CELEBRATE WITH CAMDEN UNISON! Friday 8 November – 6pm onwards, The Chapel Bar, 29 Penton Street N1 9PX

Earlier this year our traffic warden members took 33 days strike action and won a brilliant pay rise. They were supported by our branch and other individuals/branches, and we want to thank you.

And after decades of activity in Camden UNISON, Barry Walden, John Mann and Mandy Berger are leaving so join us in thanking them for building a campaigning UNISON branch that stands up for our members!

We have DJs, food and of course a few speeches.
