Macmillan Coffee Morning: A Big Thank You!

The Branch would like to say a big thank you to everyone that helped, contributed and attended our Macmillan Coffee Morning last Friday.

We had a great turn out and managed to raise £210, which I’m sure you’ll all agree is going to a very worthy charity.

UNISON plan to take the donation in person to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice in Stoke-on-Trent in the next few weeks.

29th September March & Rally

The situation is critical.  Our NHS is in crisis: starved of funds; sliced up and sold off to private companies; haemorrhaging staff, the lifeblood of the NHS.

UNISON  is leading the campaign to defend the NHS against the coalition government's plans to break it up and sell it off.

We care about the NHS, its staff, and patients.

Answer the call for your NHS.

Join UNISON on Sunday 29th September at 11am in Liverpool Road, Manchester City Centre.

We will be arranging a coach to the march, picking up from Stafford, Lichfield and Newcastle-under-Lyme.

If you would like to book a seat or would like further information contact the branch on 01785 245000 or unison@staffsunison.org.uk.
