Assistant General Secretary, Steve Turner.

I’d just like to invite you to take a few minutes to watch our latest film on Unite community.

Also attached is a brief report on how Community membership is progressing and and all the amazing things community members do and how it is enhancing Unite’s reputation as the leading union in standing up for working class communities in the UK.

Unite’s community members play a really important role in supporting our industrial members in their disputes and readily attend picket lines and demonstrations to defend our public services.

But for community to continue to grow we need your help. Industrial branches can link up with community branches and can really help by donating money to sponsor community members who cannot afford the subscription. For as little as £104 you can bring four new members into our union. Community groups do a lot of local campaigning and donations also help pay the travel fares to get unemployed and disabled people out to demonstrations.

Unite employs a Community Coordinator in every region who will be happy to speak at branch meetings or identify a community member who could go along and explain what community is doing in the region.

If you want to find out more please contact my colleague Liane Groves on 02085407176 or 07793661657 or email.
