Communications & Campaigns are co-ordinated by UNISON Scotland’s Communications & Campaigns Committee (CCC) in partnership with the Communications Officer and the Scottish Committee.

The Scottish Communications and Campaigns Committee comprises members directly elected from the Scottish Council and nominees from other Scottish Committees. It is supported by a professional Communications Officer.

It is a working committee that takes a hands on practitioner role as well as a strategic policy role.

Its role includes the lay edited and controlled bi-monthly bulletin for activists, Scotland inUNISON, campaigns, policy and sponsorship and advertising.

It also aims to support branches in campaigns through briefings, help in setting up branch magazines and assistance with media strategy.

Communications Activists’ Days

Activists’ Days are held twice a year, usually in Dundee and Edinburgh and are a combination of training, briefings, input on issues like social media, press releases and topical campaigns.

  • Recent events have included input from branches on their campaigns, sharing ideas, using blogs, twitter, and Facebook and workshops on issues like photography.
