UNISON says goodbye & thank you to Dave Prentis


At the recent UNISON NEC meeting many members thanked Dave for his 40 years of service to the union (20 years as our General Secretary), often giving emotional tributes and wished him well on his retirement. He was presented with honorary Life membership, a "man shed" present for his garden and a plaque that will one day be put on the 9th floor NEC meeting chamber at our UNISON centre - renaming the chamber after him. 

There is an excellent page on our website "Dave Prentis: a life in UNISON".   

At the traditional UNISON NEC/Staff Christmas quiz on Wednesday (sadly held virtually of course - but still fun) there was further testimonials including a suggestion that Dave's scoring at this quiz event had improved greatly in recent years due to Google!  

The new General Secretary of UNISON will be announced on the 11 January 2021.
