We now have a “Union Contact Corner” in our monthly SWU newsletter and we request contributions from all Union Contacts. Spreading the word about the importance of membership is a vital part of the Union Contact role, and contributing to your Newsletter provides you with an opportunity to do this. A paragraph or so will be acceptable for submission, and we’d like comments about what inspired you to become involved; why you feel it’s important to strengthen and develop your Union; and discussing the benefits of dual-membership with BASW. These are all important points that will interest and inspire SWU members.
If you have a few minutes to write a paragraph on one or all of the above points, or if you have any other comment you’d like to add to “Union Contact Corner”, whether it be humorous, work-related, or about social work in general, please send them to our National Organiser.
