‘Recruit a friend’ brings 500 new members into UNISON

Five hundred new UNISON members have been recruited as a result of U Magazine’s “recruit a friend” competition.

The impressive figure was revealed today, along with the 24 winners of the prize draw – 12 recruiters and the 12 new members they brought into the union.

The initiative was launched in the Autumn 2013 issue of the magazine. Members were invited to recruit a friend and submit each of their names to the prize draw by December.

Prizes include two holidays worth up to £1,200, two iPads, 10 Kindles and 10 digital cameras.

The winners of a prize holiday are Mrs Pamela Meadows of the Environment Agency South West branch, and the friend she recruited, Miss Charlotte Megan Smith of Devon County.

The iPad winners are Mrs AM Mason and Ms Sarah Hall, both of Leicestershire County branch.

Congratulations to those and the following winners of our other prizes, with an additional thanks to the recruiters and welcome to our new members.
