The branch is always on the lookout for new stewards, workplace contacts and health and safety reps. It really is the case that the more workplace representatives the branch has, the easier it is to keep in touch and deal with member issues.
A UNISON workplace rep is the most important link between the union and its members. Support is available from your branch, UNISON staff and there are excellent training courses run throughout the year. You will get paid time off to attend training. Being a rep can be a great experience. Give it a go!
If you are interested in becoming more active with UNISON or want to find out more, please contact the branch.
