UNISON had a stand in South Street, Dorchester last Saturday (4 June 2016) aimed at encouraging women to participate in the EU referendum and to support the UNISON remain in EU campaign.
The Dorset Labour Women’s Forum had a Labour IN stand next to us.
The event was very successful and we spoke to a number of women who were keen to listen to the arguments about protecting Workers’ rights, the NHS and the economy in order to make an informed decision at the ballot box on 23rd June.
We also had a number of current UNISON members who were pleased to see us engaging with the public and who took the UNISON leaflets to distribute in their own workplaces.
The women’s officer for Dorset County Branch came to help on the UNISON stand and the women’s officer for the local Labour party was assisted on the Labour stand by members of the Dorset Labour Women’s Forum.
