November is just around the corner – and that means it’s nearly Grovember!
You know about Grovember right? Our month-long push to raise our recruitment levels and improve retention too? Everybody’s talking about it and planning their work to make the UK’s biggest and best union even bigger and even better. To make it work we need everyone to join in.
Get ready for November
Supporting members and recruiting new people to UNISON is what we all do week in and week out anyway. Because of our focus on recruitment and organising, we’ve kept UNISON strong despite massive job cuts in public services. But now we have a chance to turn things around and grow our union.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 25th birthday – and to help all those people out there working hard to provide our vital public services who should be in UNISON because they need us.
So, let’s get out there and talk to them about all the support that’s on offer from UNISON and all the great campaigning work we are doing to improve the public services we all care so much about. Let’s show potential members why we are so proud to be in UNISON, and let’s remind our existing members why they joined and how to access our help and support when they need it.
There’s plenty of stuff available on our online catalogue to help you plan and deliver Grovember in our online catalogue.
