Itís Friday again!

Looks like winterís finally arrived too!

This week weíve met with several social workers from adults and childrenís services and listened to their experiences of working for NCC. So, a big thank you to all who came and spoke to us, please be assured your voices will be heard.

Lorna has also been meeting with our colleagues in the health service unions including Unison Health Branch and the BMA.

Ben continues to hold regular stalls at William Knibb and Angel Square with information about Unison including free training courses and other member benefits. Yesterday he was at William Knibb and will be at Angel Square Atrium on the following dates

Tuesday 22nd January, 11am-2pm
Wednesday 30th January, 11am-2pm

Ben is also busy with organising effective fire evacuation processes at OAS and William Knibb. He ran a fire warden safety session on Wednesday which was attended by 42 members of staff!! This is another very good reason to be in a trade union, to improve your safety at work.

We would encourage everyone to respond to the Health and Wellbeing survey too.

A young member from Northants County who was entered into the East Midlands prize draw for updating their details has won an iPad. So, congratulations to them, I will hopefully be presenting it to them next week.

Also, somewhat related to this, we donít have up to date email addresses for some members so cannot communicate via email so if any of your colleagues are not receiving this and are members please ask them to call the office 01604 670400 with their contact details?
