Working over Christmas? This is for you

The public have a message for those of you working over the holidays

Members of the public have given their messages of thanks to public sector workers who keep essential services running over the Christmas holidays.

“Thank you for forsaking your Christmas for others, it’s a noble cause”. That’s what one member of the public said when UNISON asked them if they wanted to give a message to those working at Christmas.

At UNISON we know that lots of people work on Christmas day. From hospital cleaners, porters, catering staff, nurses, and receptionists to 999 call handlers, homecare workers and many, many more.

The people asked to contribute to the film were overwhelmingly grateful to everyone who keeps our public services running.

Watch the film, above, to see exactly what they had to say.

And please share the film with the hash tags #workingatChristmas and #thankyourchampions

You can also add your own thank you to our Public Service Champions here.
