UNISON National Housing Forum 03/03/10
The UNISON National Housing Forum met on 3 March 2010. It represents housing workers from across the UK, based in local authorities, ALMOS and Housing Associations. The forum was updated on the dispute at Notting Hill Housing Trust, including the reasons for the dispute and the recent resounding ballot result. It expressed its strong support for UNISON members at NHHT and wished them success in their forthcoming industrial action. Forum members were told about the proposed strike date of 15 March 2010 and those who are able to would like to support the picket lines on the day. Forum members have asked to be kept updated and for any Branch bulletins about the industrial action to be forwarded to them via UNISON national officers. They were also provided with details of the blog/twitter feed where up to date information can be found and were asked to contribute to the letter writing campaign to Kate Davies.
