Conference applauds winners of young members’ organising award

Scottish young members win organising award for work against bullying

‘We are not defined by our sexuality, our race or our gender.’

That was a key part of the campaigning message that saw the Scottish young members committee being awarded the young members’ organising award on day two of UNISON’s national delegate conference in Brighton this morning

The committee has already won a TUC award for the same work.

The hall applauded loudly as Matt Ellis collected the award from vice president Carol Sewell and, after being joined by the rest of the team (pictured), delegates were then able to watch a short film that had been made by them.

Highlighting the nature of bullying, it reminded viewers that nobody is defined by a single characteristic, but that all are members of the UNISON family.
