The FBU will be supporting Pride this year which is in Glasgow at Glasgow Green on Saturday 10th August. FBU Officials from the National LGBT Section along with local officials will be in Glasgow to take part in the Pride Parade. We would love to see LGBT members, families and friends march under our banner. We will be meeting in Glasgow Green at 11am for a 12.00 start. If any members would like to find out any info on our LGBT section then please click on the link that will take you to our national officials.
An all-members update is available covering a range of topics. This has been circulated but is also available online via the Resource section and Related Content.
During the current pensions campaign the FBU is encouraging members to contact their MP's. Of course here in Scotland, much of the relevant work is undertaken by the Scottish Parliamnet. We would therefore encourage members to also contact their MSP's - and please do bear in mind that you each have 1 constituency MSP plus several List MSP's. Their contact details are available here
