Free parking extended
UNISON members in Mid and South Essex NHS Trust are keeping their free parking for now when UNISON campaigned against parking charges being reintroduced after the pandemic.
After surveying the staff about how they felt about having to pay for parking again, the branch had the ammunition to go to the chief executive with a giant letter expressing staff views. They organised a letter writing campaign, a petition and a workplace demonstration while UNISON reps made it clear to HR that this was not the time to reintroduce parking charges. Now the decision has been put back for a number of months so UNISON members at the trust continue to park for free.
