Free Spanish Classes for UNISON members

The first of our informal drop-in Spanish conversation classes took place this week, with myself (Danny) and other members taking it in turns to embarrass ourselves in front of our SOAS-student volunteer Valeria.

We'll be continuing these every Wednesday at 12.30 in the union office (ST266) and all members are welcome to attend - no experience required, and it doesn't matter if you've missed any of the previous classes.

For more information, just drop me a line at

Rally to save the NHS

If you're free on Wednesday 7th March betweeen 6pm and 7.30, and would like to stand up for the NHS, you can join the TUC-organised Rally to Save the NHS. You need to register for places to join the rally at Central hall, Westminster, or you can join the 'online rally' by blogging, commenting, and tweeting about the event.

If you can, do join in the protest - our best chance to change the proposals is before the bill goes back to the House of Commons.
