Worth It Campaign message from Karen Jennings

Worth It - Welcome to the campaign for better pay
UNISON has launched a major new campaign to boost the pay of public service workers.
 Members have had their pay capped and frozen whilst prices have continued to shoot
up.  All workers have seen a huge chunk taken from their pay packets (a 16%
reduction in public services since 2010) and many are simply no longer able to make
ends meet.  The message of the 'Worth It' campaign is that with UNISON, you can
fight for better, fairer pay  and  we can help members make ends meet.  In doing so
we are making the case for why fair and decent pay is important for members, service
delivery and for society.  For more details of our campaign messages, see our
campaign webpage

Over the coming months we will be spreading the 'Worth It' message in every UNISON
workplace, in the media and online.  We are determined to break down the myth that
holding down workers pay is a necessary or even an effective way of tackling the
deficit and getting the economy back on track.  The current  policy of pay caps and
continued pain for public sector workers is unjust, damaging and self-defeating.

In the initial stages of the Worth It campaign there are three things you can do help:

1.       Follow the campaign on Twitter here:

2.       Like our Page on Facebook here:

3.       Forward this email to all of you branch contacts, asking them to sign up to
our email list by emailing<>

In future months we will be asking those who have signed up to the campaign to get
involved in further campaigning activities.

Best Wishes,

Karen Jennings
