Organising tree winners

Organising TreeAs over 100 UNISON Scotland activists took part in training in May, we ran an Organising Tree competition where participants wrote ideas on the leaves. The winners were…

“Smart conversations make big differences” – Wilma Brown, Fife Health

“Recruitment alone is not enough. Members need to be allowed to develop so they can take forward our message. A seedling needs to be watered so it can grow into a plant, otherwise it will wither and die” – Shirley Kirk, University of Strathclyde

“Recruiting well trained and active stewards” – Karen Morrison, Forth Valley Health

“More cross Branch/Region meetings to allow for sharing of ideas and best practice especially for reps not part of Committees” – Dianne O’Donnell, Housing Care Scotland

“Learn how to let go and trust others” – Katrina Murray, Lanarkshire Health

“Visibility” – Kevin Potts, Police Staff Scotland

“Recruitment of members and making them into successful activists” – Matt Ellis, Grampian Health
