At UNISON we’ve been very busy since the start of the coronavirus crisis writing stories about members on the frontline, focussing on the amazing work they do – saving lives and keeping the country running.
We’ve also been busy holding the government to account and campaigning for PPE to make sure our members and all key workers are protected – both financially and physically – at this incredibly difficult time.
But not all of our members have been contributing in such a high-profile way, on the front line.
So, we’d also like to shine a light on some of the more unusual, imaginative, even fun ways that UNISON members and branches have been contributing to the fight against COVID-19 and helping their colleagues, families, neighbours and communities to cope – whether it’s baking banana bread on an industrial scale for key workers, organising food bank collections, sewing scrubs or setting up a Zoom yoga class.
You tell us. It would be great to hear and share your lockdown stories.
