White Ribbon Campaign

White RibbonOur Branch Secretary Christina Sanna and Reps John Yarker and Najeeb Nazir are out today wearing their White Ribbons!  Nottingham City UNISON are proud to support White Ribbon Day and an end to male violence against women.

The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) is a global movement of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls. It was formed by a group of pro-feminist men in London, Ontario in November 1991 as a response to the École Polytechnique massacre of female students by Marc Lépine in 1989. The campaign was intended to raise awareness about the prevalence of male violence against women, with the ribbon symbolizing "the idea of men giving up their arms." Active in over 60 countries, the movement seeks to promote healthy relationships, gender equity, and a compassionate vision of masculinity which ends violence against women whilst simultaneously encouraging men to have a discussion about masculinity itself.

Former Dynasty star highlights UNISON’s Pay Up Now! campaign

branch-squareA new UNISON film, featuring former Dynasty actor Stephanie Beacham, takes a tongue-in-cheek look at why the overnment should give teaching assistants, paramedics, refuse collectors and other public service workers a pay rise.

The two-minute satirical Pat on the Back film highlights the government's hypocritical attitude to public servants – commending their dedication and hard work, yet refusing to lift the public sector pay cap, says UNISON.

But behind UNISON's spoof film is a serious message. Low pay not only harms individual employees and their families, it means services are run down as staff desert the public sector in search of higher wages.

Notts Pride

Nottinghamshire Pride took place on Satirday 29th July. 6000 people attended the march, including group from the UNISON LGBT regional Self Organised Group. The stall was staffed with volunteers from the Nottingham City Branch SOG and straight allies. It was a well attended event where we spoke with so many people with a variety of issues. Many people didn't know what at TU was, or didn't know if they were in one. Lots of people were worried about how Brexit would affect them personally and one lovely man who was in his 60's who has never felt comfortable enough to be out in the work place. Lots of
recruitment took place including three into the Branch SOG.
