A happy and peaceful festive season to all our members

Christmas tree… and especially to those working to keep Scotland’s essential services going over the holiday.

Thousands of public service workers will be at work delivering Scotland’s essential services over the festive holidays. In local councils, the health services, utilities and many other services, UNISON members will be working to ensure we are looked after and communities are kept safe.

And you are appreciated as these video messages from the public show…  https://www.unison.org.uk/news/article/2016/12/working-over-christmas-this-is-for-you/

Members of the public have given their messages of thanks to public sector workers who keep essential services running over the Christmas holidays.

“Thank you for forsaking your Christmas for others, it’s a noble cause”. That’s what one member of the public said when UNISON asked them if they wanted to give a message to those working at Christmas.

The people asked to contribute to the film were overwhelmingly grateful to everyone who keeps our public services running.

Watch the film, above, to see exactly what they had to say.

And please share the film with the hash tags #workingatChristmas and #thankyourchampions

You can also add your own thank you to our Public Service Champions here.
