Members may be aware that Thursday 5 July is the 70th birthday of the NHS. This week also sees UNISON celebrate its 25th birthday.
To mark the occasion, UNISON is encouraging all branches (regardless of service group) to organise birthday-themed activities and events, such as holding birthday parties, arranging stalls to celebrating the history of the NHS, or organising stunts and social media activity.
There is still time to organise your event in your branch.
This will also be the first of our regional recruitment weeks for 2018.
July also marks 25 years since NALGO, COHSE and NUPE merged to form UNISON, the UK’s largest union for workers in public services.
