Saturday 30th July is Nottinghamshire Pride.
Nottingham City UNISON Branch is part of the UNISON East Midlands region, along with a whole host of other branches supporting workers in organisations across the East Midlands, including UNISON branches in Nottinghamshire, Leicester City, Leicestershire, Derby City, and Derbyshire.
UNISON East Midlands Regional LGBT Self Organised Group (SOG) will be taking part in the Nottinghamshire Pride March through the streets of Nottingham on Saturday 30th July with our big, bold and bright banner which is brand new for 2016.
We would love for Nottingham City UNISON Branch members, their families and their friends to come and march with us.
You don't have to identify as LGBT to join us, we welcome and encourage everyone to come and walk with us to show solidarity in the wake of the recent, horrific events in Orlando and demonstrate to all that there is no room for hate in our society, whatever form it may take.
If you would like to take part, please come and find the UNISON banner on the corner of Castle Gate and Lister Gate (by Marks and Spencers), gathering from 11:00am. (Please see the attached poster.)
We look forward to seeing you there - wear something bright or in rainbow colours and be prepared to make some noise!
Nottingham City Branch

UNISON conducted a national survey of homecare workers in 2012 entitled "Time to Care" to illustrate the reality of homecare work. The responses showed a committed but poorly paid and treated workforce which is doing its best to maintain good levels of quality care in a system that is in crisis. The report highlights how poor terms and conditions for workers can help contribute towards lower standards of care for people in receipt of homecare services. In light of UNISON's findings UNISON nationally is calling for councils to commit to becoming Ethical Care Councils by commissioning homecare services which adhere to our Ethical Care Charter. Nottingham City UNISON is pleased to announce that Nottingham City Council has now agreed to commit to the charter which was signed on 7 June 2016 by our Branch Secretary, Christina Sanna and the Portfolio Holder for Adults and Health, Alex Norris.
Please see the signed Charter attached Ethical Care Charter Signed Agreement
