dsulia Poynter, UNISON Families Convenor has left Waltham Forest. She worked tirelessly representing members and negotiating on their behalf for many years and will be sorely missed by the branch. She wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ to all UNISON members and colleagues for the wonderful presents and send off they gave her last week. “It was all a bit overwhelming but lovely to see so many people that I’ve worked with or represented over the years.” She sent her best wishes to all and hopes to see people around the borough.
