The branch won gold twice at this year’s Scottish Communications Awards, winning first prize in the Best Publications category for UNISON Matters, the Branch newsletter, and taking the honours in the Best Online Presence category for the website, Branch Blog and Twitter.
Gold certificates were presented to Morag Lawrence, Newssheet Editor and Kate Ramsden, Webmanager at UNISON’s Scottish Council Meeting of branches on Saturday 7th December 2013, along with cheques for £150 in each category.
Morag said, “I am delighted to have won this award on behalf of the branch. It’s the first time that the Branch has entered the Newsletter, so to win the gold award is a great accolade.”
Kate added, “It was fantastic to win these awards and it is a tribute to all the organising and campaigning work done by the branch.
“I maintain the website and the Blog, and Morag edits the newsletter, but we are never short of things to report. We are a very active branch and the newsletter, website and blog shows just how much work all our branch officers and activists do to support our members.”
