Blog: Reinvigorated for the year ahead

Thank you to everyone who attended the conference for your involvement, your passion and your dedication to our members – whether it was your first time at NDC, or your 26th, you are the beating heart of this union.

Our National Delegate Conference (NDC) which took place last week in Liverpool showcased so much of what makes our union great.

We discussed some of the biggest issues facing our country, our public services and the wider world – and developed a plan of action focussed on the priorities of UNISON members for the year ahead. We heard from hundreds of UNISON members who made countless inspirational speeches – learning more about each other’s lives and the struggles public service workers are facing each and every day.

Spending a week at our special conference with UNISON members always leaving me feeling reinvigorated for the year ahead – and reminds us all what we’re fighting for.

The week ended with the election of a new Presidential team who will lead our union for the next twelve months. I’m looking forward to working with President Josie Bird, who was elected alongside Senior Vice President Sian Stockham and Junior Vice President James Anthony. I know they’ll all do a great job representing our union and standing up for our members.
