Inez Kirk, Branch Secretary said: “Whether you work for Aberdeenshire Council, Cornerstone or one of the many other employers Aberdeenshire UNISON represents we aim to have something for everyone. Cuts in every employer and demands on your time continue!

“We need you, our members, to participate. We need you to respond to surveys and ballots, to have your say and shape the way your branch operates, to ensure your views are represented and heard.

“Within these AGMs we have a number of motions on issues locally, nationally and internationally that we hope are important to you as workers and citizens.
