Vote 'yes'

UNISON is asking its members to vote YES in the ballot for industrial action to protect public sector pensions. 


Current proposals mean that most people will pay more and work longer to get a pension that will be worth less.


We are balloting for strike action initially to start on 30 November. We are also working with other trade unions and community groups to organise local and national protests in support of public sector pensions. 


We need a big YES vote and a high turnout to send a clear and united message to ministers that "enough is enough", that will help persuade them to withdraw their current unfair and unjustified attacks on pensions.

The ballot opens on 11 October and closes on 3 November.

4th October : UNISON call to ACTION!

UNISON members answered the call to take strike on the 4th of October 2011, joining UCU colleagues and the Students Union (shattering statements that Middlesex Students wouldn't support such action) UNISON members that took action on the 4th, whether joining the pickets, participating in the lobby or simply taking a days strike action should take pride in the fact they have supported the democratic mandate of the Branch and played their part in defending jobs and services at Middlesex University. More statements and information will be communicated by the Branch in the meantime enjoy the slide show!
