It was amazing to see so many wonderful colleagues on the pickets this morning. We had packed branch meeting, at which our updated hardship fund rules were unanimously approved. We will remind you of the details in a separate message later on. The meeting was followed by a lovely branch lunch in Rutherford Dining Hall. Catering staff looked us very well and the food was appreciated by all.
We were delighted to welcome a surprise visitor at lunch – our local MP, Rosie Duffield. She addressed the assembled throng and offered her support to our cause. This was met by uproarious applause.
