* Is Ms Hale scared of something, simply misinformed, or is there another agenda at work here?
* Is there, for example, any connection to the Yunus Bakhsh case?
* Which of the so-called 'Democracy Guidelines' has anyone breached - or might breach by working with the NESSN?

Dear Colleague

A number of Branches in the Region have contacted the Regional Office concerning correspondence relating to events organised by the North East Shop Stewards Network (NESSN).

This organisation is not supported by UNISON and it would be contrary to UNISON’s Democracy Guidelines for Branches to participate in activities organised by the NESSN.

Yours sincerely

Gill Hale
Regional Secretary
