UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis, praised our branch at this years’ AGM. In his address, Dave thanked the Branch for their support. He said: “The size of the branch is important, but it’s what you do with it. Cathy Miller is an example of what building strong support is all about in a union. There is much that other branches can learn from this branch.”
Dave spoke passionately about five years of austerity and sleepless nights and the prospect of a further five year of the same and the negative effect on our members.
Dave added: “Our union is standing tall. People want to listen to what we have to say. This government is trying to take away our rights and we will not let them do it.”
Cathy Miller Branch Secretary presented Dave with a canvas of branch pictures. Cathy said: “We are proud to have Dave here tonight and we thank him for his continued support. Our members are at the heart of our branch and we will continue to campaign on their behalf.”
