Heart Unions Week

8 – 14 February 2016

Across the South West

The ♥unions week of action celebrates the great work done by union reps and members in our workplaces and in society. We’re proud of our unions and reject the government’s attempts to damage them with the Trade Union Bill.

Take part

Across the South West UNISON members will be out and about in hospitals, high streets and town halls showing the value they build week in, week out in our communities.

UNISON member or not, stop and talk to our campaigners to learn why trade unions are such a key part of everyday life. There’ll also be opportunities to take action against the Government’s Trade Union Bill, which threatens to tip the balance of power too far away from employees in the workplace.
