Dear Member,
1.Scrap the Pay Cap-One of the key issues since the election has been the issue of public sector pay. Our union has submitted a claim for 5% and will expect an initial response by the end of September. In the meantime we ask you to support the campaign which will have public rallies, demonstrations,publicity materials etc. If you have any ideas please contact the Branch Office.
2. Pensions and sleep in payments
If you need further advice please contact the Branch Office
3.Join Salford Unison delegation in Rochdale on Saturday. There will be trade union delegations from across the North West. History tells us that fascists must be opposed by peaceful multicultural unity protests. if you would like to join our delegation please contact the Branch Office.
Unite Against Fascism calls on anti-racists and trade unionists to join the protest at 12 midday this Saturday, 22nd July, The Butts OL16 1ES  in Rochdale town centre, near the Town Hall, against the fascist Britain First rally.  (Opposite Wetherspoons, 5mins walk from Rochdale Metrolink stop.)
Britain First’s leader Paul Golding was imprisoned last year for eight weeks for his campaign of “invading” mosques. Leading Britain First member Jayda Fransen was convicted for religiously aggravated harassment, after she abused a Muslim woman wearing a hijab. 
Thomas Mair shouted ‘Britain First’ before he brutally murdered Jo Cox MP in 2016.
Britain First attracted about 250 to a recent rally in Birmingham. Our rally will publicly show they’re not welcome in Rochdale.
