Newly trained stewards who attended a networking and training event on the 20th September at UNISON Centre were treated to a surprise visitor partway through the morning.
The Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, stopped in with Dave Prentis to say hello and talk about the value and importance of stewards. Mr Corbyn spoke some words of encouragement to our stewards, expressing his gratitude for their selfless work on behalf of UNISON members.
*Cue an immediate halt to all workshops and a few mumbled ‘Ohhhh, Jeremy Corbyn!’s
Needless to say, members were thrilled to have the opportunity to chat with a very positive and upbeat Labour Leader, ahead of the Labour Party Conference that starts on Sunday.
