With rising fuel costs and another cold winter many members are worried about how they’re going to pay this year’s winter fuel bills.
Help is on hand
“There for You” has set up a limited fund to help UNISON members on low income by way of a one-off payment of up to £40.
To apply and download the application form visit unison.org/thereforyou or simply contact your UNISON branch office. Everyone that applies will receive a booklet giving information about other help that may be available and how to reduce your fuel costs in the future.
Joint result of UNISON and GMB Travel Ballots
UNISON has advised the Council that our members have rejected the travel proposal and we have offered to meet the Council to discuss alternative ways of achieving the required 10% saving on the travel budget as we believe the saving needed could be achieved without cutting the rate of pay per mile.
Of those who voted:
- 63% Rejected the Council’s proposal
- 37% Accepted the Council’s proposal
