Prize draw update: 29 March

Two new branches break in to our top 10 in our latest #HeartUNISON prize draw update

We’re pleased to be able to announce that University of South Wales branch’s well publicised desire to make it into the top 10 in the league table has paid off, with them reaching joint eighth place in this week’s overall rankings and joint fourth in the medium branch rankings. Well done team, keep up the hard work!

Joining them in 8th place overall are the South East Energy branch, who are to be congratulated on signing up 13.3% of their members in the past seven days, and pushing themselves into the top 10 medium branches in the process. Congratulations to you on an impressive sign up rate, although Craig – who is processing all the paper forms – is covered in papercuts, and a few more digital entries might save us some plasters!

The proportion of new members signed up by South East Energy branch last week comes second only in the whole country to the Isles of Scilly branch (15%).

Strathclyde University retain their commanding lead in both the overall and Small branch categories, adding a respectable 3.9% of members this week. They are followed in both categories by Ribble Valley Local GovernmentLiverpool Hope University and Warwickshire Police and Justice Staff.

We’d also like to give a shout out to our most improved Large branches, including Cornwall Local Government, Liverpool Acute Hospitals, Newcastle City and Wiltshire, all of whom managed to sign up more than 2% of their members in the last week (Newcastle City entering the top ten Large branches in the process).

As ever, full branch league tables can be found at the bottom of this page. We’ve also updated our infographic of the top ten branches (click to enlarge).
