Treasurer’s Report

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.

Aberdeenshire UNISON has shown over the last 3 years that we can deliver when it comes to statutory ballots and this year’s successful industrial action. You, our members, have shown that you are not to be taken for granted and that you are prepared to stand up and demand to be treated with respect.

We have tried to shape the AGM to reflect the issues are bringing to us, we hope you find something of interest.

Pleases come along and bring a fellow member. The AGM is your chance to hear about the work we are doing on your behalf and a chance for you to shape the future of your Union. Members of the Branch Committee will be on hand to answer any questions or just to chat.

We very much hope that you will come along and look forward to seeing you there.
