Issue 9 March/April 2005
To all retired members who read the Retired Members information
on the UNISON Website.
I live in Dundee and am aware that some of the information will
only cover the Tayside area, or will be local numbers.
However practically all of the numbers, email addresses, and Internet
addresses, deal nationally, and will be the same contact point no
matter where you live in Scotland.
Also if they do not deal with your particular area, then they are
bound to know which contacts you require.
So if you see a particular article that you wish to find out about,
but it is a Dundee telephone code, it might be worthwhile to give
them a call, and they could point you in the right direction.

I picked up a magazine when I was at the AGM called Retired Dundee.
It's a local magazine for the over 50's and provides lots of local
If you're interested you'll get a copy on the top floor of the
Wellgate Centre, opposite the Weavers Café. It'll be in one
of the racks that are there.
It says inside my copy that you can get it delivered if you want.
So if you like it then you won't have to keep trailing back to the
centre to get it. I think I read it comes out every six months.
