UNISON extends sympathy to Japanese people

UNISON has sent condolences to sister unions in Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the country last Friday.

Offering "whatever assistance we can", UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: "It is at times like these that the importance and value of public service workers is brought most sharply into focus.

"In rescuing the victims, in treating the injured, in restoring essential services and in comforting those affected, it is the members that public service unions represent who are at the forefront, putting aside their own concerns and needs in order to help others."

Similar letters have been sent to other sister unions, including ZENSUIDO, JHCWU, ZENSHOUKYO, JPSU and TOSHIKO
