Dear Colleagues / Friends,

I can’t believe we are into September already, where has the time gone!

We are now coming into our busy period regarding our campaigning for a better than average budget settlement from the Welsh Government for 2020/2021. We require your support. This campaign is the most important thing we are going to do together. Our campaigns over the past years have directly resulted in a better than expected settlement giving the council extra money- this reduces redundancies, keeps services in-house and protects our terms and conditions. VITAL TO US ALL. We need your contributions and support in this campaign, we are clearly stronger together as one voice. We have again arranged our excellent Question Time Panel Event on Friday 11th October 1pm to 2pm (paid time off to attend) at Council Chamber Port Talbot Civic Centre, we have a number of politicians attending. Please please attend to show unity and also have your say on how more money will assist your roles and protect services and jobs. If you want to be involved in our campaign please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Thanks again, Mark and Jane,
