Manchester Arena Bomb

NWAS UNISON would like to pay tribute to our members who faced the horrific scenes at the Manchester Arena bombing last night (22nd May 2017) and to also recognise the hard working members in our EOC at Parkway.

We have received many calls and messages from UNISON Branches across the UK and we would like to thank them all for their support. Dave Prentis, UNISON General Secretary emailed this morning to say “After last night’s terrible events I hope everyone in the branch is ok. Please pass on my thanks to all our members who as always continue to work over and above the call of duty, I am so proud you are all part of our union”.
