These competitions aim to:
- celebrate union membership
- highlight the great work done by your reps, who give up their time voluntarily to support and help members.
Members and reps in BT and our other communications and digital workplaces are encouraged to take part, so grab your camera or your phone and show some love to your union.
Download the Heart Unions sign here (also pictured above) and take a photograph of yourself and/or colleagues holding up one or more of them. The winning photos will appear on the BECTU website and in BECTU sector members’ magazine Stage, Screen and Radio.
The winning photographers will also win a £25 book, theatre or cinema voucher. A winner will be chosen from each of the following categories:
- largest group
- most creative
- best dressed
- best selfie
- best event (eg stall, recruitment cake sale, sporting event)
- most liked on social media.
To enter, post your pics on BECTU's Twitter feed @bectu and/or Facebook page (or you can email them to organising official Naomi Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them for you) during Heart Unions Week. The winners will be announced the following week. On Twitter remember to include the #HeartUnions hashtag
Do you have a really active rep in your workplace?
Would you like to show them how much you appreciate the work they do?
If so, drop Naomi an email - email@example.com - during Heart Unions week (or before) just saying who you are nominating, where they work, and why you think they are such a great rep.
There will be seven winners, one from each division of the BECTU sector of Prospect – these are Communications & Digital, Arts & Entertainment, Regional Production, London Production, Independent Broadcast, and BBC.
Members or full-time officers can nominate a rep.
Winners will be announced the week after Heart Unions week and will appear on BECTU’s social media, website and in Stage, Screen & Radio. If a winner needs to remain anonymous, we can just name the branch instead.
Each winning rep will receive a £25 voucher either for books, theatre tickets or cinema tickets.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate our BECTU and Prospect reps.
Best of luck and we look forward to receiving your entries.
