Unions 21 at work - Sue Ferns
For the next six weeks we will be working hard to grow our individual supporter base through our #ForMeForMyUnion campaign. The key driver behind this activity is to showcase that joining Unions 21 as an individual isn’t just about personal reward. People who join us repeatedly tell us that their union and wider colleagues have also reaped the benefits. A key part of the campaign is introducing some of our individual supporters and some of the key players within Unions 21. This interview with our Chair, Sue Ferns is the first in a series of blog posts to showcase why they are involved with Unions 21, what drives them and what goes into their work on a day- to-day basis.
