The UNISON Disabled Members’ Conference 2016 takes place on 29th – 31st October in Brighton. We are looking for expressions of interest to attend the conference as a delegate from the branch. Travel and accommodation will be arranged by the branch and subsistence payments will be available.
The Yomp (a military term for a long-distance march) is an epic adventure challenge. Teams of 3-6 people take on 54 miles in 24 hours across the rugged terrain of the Scottish wilderness whilst raising money for soldiers, veterans and their families.
Helped by sponsorship from UNISON a team of members, the Tyne Tunnel Trekkers, entered the event which took place on 11 June in Perthshire.
The Trekkers completed the 54 mile 'gold' route in 22:22:42, coming in 43rd out of 94 teams.

UNISONProtect is very pleased to introduce a brand new product to their range - Female Cancer Cover.
Research by Macmillan Cancer support has identified that four out of five cancer patients are on average £570 a month worse off following their diagnosis*. This is the result of a combination of factors, including having to stop work while receiving treatment, needing extra childcare, higher household bills and transport costs to and from hospital, it all adds up.
