the city's most effective trade union

12 Days of Organising – Day 2

12 Days of Organising


UNISON’s new TV advert is going out this week on ITV in the North West, and various digital terrestrial and cable channels. It focuses on the essential cover we provide for public sector workers, and the fantastic services on offer for UNISON members.

We really want to get as many people watching it this week as possible to help us grow, so today’s task is simple. Please share the Youtube version of our advert on your Facebook feed, so that as many of your friends who are potential members can see it. If everyone receiving this email does this, we’ll have aired it to well over 800,000 people by the end of today.

Activists from across our region are teaming up with UNISON’s full time staff to organise, recruit and campaign in workplaces today. Check out our live blog for information about what they’ve been up to.


We’re keeping it simple today, so your Tuesday campaign resource is our new TV advert. Please share it on Facebook and Twitter, and help us spread the word about the importance of union membership.

Tomorrow, we’ll have some organising resources for you from our fighting-fund organising teams, with some techniques which you might like to try in your own workplace. A bunny rabbit is involved…


Nurses, home care assistants, school cleaners and teaching assistants are among the UNISON members struggling with rising fuel bills and turning to the union for help. The union has seen a massive 388% increase in requests for financial assistance, as the effect of the Government’s three year pay freeze bites deeper into household incomes.

Take a look at the story on our website, and share it on your social media profile to help us raise awareness of the effects of rising energy costs on public sector workers whose wages are frozen.

Share our TV Ad

Our challenge for today is to share our new TV ad via Facebook and Twitter. By helping us to spread the word, you’ll be playing an important part in raising our union’s profile in the early stages of this recruitment campaign. Please share our TV advert today.
