UNISON’s National Delegate Conference last week passed an Emergency Motion calling on Branches to support our members in Rochdale Branch, who are taking industrial action over cuts to pay and terms and conditions.
There will be a march and rally in Rochdale Town Centre on Saturday 29th June, starting at 11 am from the Butts. The route through the centre of the town is short and will be followed by a rally on the Butts, ending at approximately 12 noon. Further detailed information and a map will be sent to Branches later this week.
We urgently need volunteers who can steward the march and rally, who will be available from 10 am till 12.30 pm on Saturday.
For more details, please contact Lizanne Devonport at firstname.lastname@example.org or Karen Longmire at email@example.com, or 07957 504 885. We also need to ensure that Branches are aware of the march and that it is well supported.
The Branch will also need support in order to sustain action, as we do not know how long it is likely to last. Please send messages of support and donations to Helen Harrison, Branch Secretary, Rochdale UNISON, 46 Richard Street, Rochdale, OL11 1DU. Cheques can be made payable to Rochdale UNISON.
