The “Hands off Oxford City” campaign we supported in response to community and staff concerns has been hugely successful and achieved more than 10,000 signatures to the petition against the proposals.
This is a huge vote of confidence in the City Council and the other District Councils and we are proud of the public and staff support.
If you would like to help further, please consider contacting your MP:
Rt Hon Andrew Smith MP, Member of Parliament for Oxford East
Nicola Blackwood MP, Member of Parliament for Oxford West and Abingdon
John Howell MP, Member of Parliament for Henley
Victoria Prentis MP, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire
Rt Hon Edward Vaizey MP, Member of Parliament for Didcot and Wantage
Robert Courts MP, Member of Parliament for Witney and West Oxfordshire
Finally, Oxford City Branch Of UNISON would like to take this opportunity to again say a huge thank you to you all for your support for the campaign.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind everybody that our argument is with the County Unitary proposals and not with staff or Councillors in organisations supporting it.
Our argument and campaign has been, and always will be, respectful of other's different views, and long must this continue, together in solidarity with all our trade union brothers and sisters, in UNISON.
