As you know, we’re in the middle of a national emergency, the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the second world war.

The extent that coronavirus has affected all our lives is unprecedented.

Once again our public service workers are on the frontline fighting to keep our communities and our country safe and well. Fighting, against the odds, to keep services running.

I know how worried you are – for you, your families and those you care for. I want to tell you how proud I am of all of you and all you are doing. It is not going unnoticed and is appreciated more than ever.

I also want to reassure you that UNISON staff are working hard to make sure the union’s business continues and our service to you is maintained. Information is changing rapidly and we are committed to keeping you informed. You can find our latest guidance on our website.

Thank you again for everything you are doing.
