Our Green UNISON Day - Thurs 13 Sept

Some 'green' dates for your diaries this autumn, from UNISON Scotland's Green Network!
We are planning for a day of green workplace action that we hope branches will take part in on Thursday 13 September.
The idea is for branches across Scotland to join in some co-ordinated action for helping cut emissions at work.

A range of possible activities includes green audits, energy efficiency work, campaigning against single use plastics and for fair trade purchases, cycle friendly employer status and more.

A short guide and some ideas for promoting Green UNISON Day on social media will be circulated to branches soon. It’s suggested that these green workplace activities could also take place throughout the week running up to the 13 September, for those branches who would like to do more.

 We hope this will appeal to lots of members. All members are welcome to join our informal Green Network mailing list and come to meetings. Check out our Facebook page for occasional updates/info.

The next Green Network meeting will be from 1.30pm-3.30pm on Saturday 15 September in the UNISON Scotland office at 14 West Campbell Street, Glasgow G2 6RX, following the International Committee meeting.

 Then on Wednesday 19 September, please join the Stop Climate Chaos Scotland mass lobby at the Scottish Parliament, calling for a strong new Climate Act.

Info on the SCCS website here. Please also support the E-Action to MSPs.

If you are interested in being on the Green Network email list, please email Fiona Montgomery asking to join.
