Take Part. Get Involved in Your UNISON


THERE ARE MANY WAYS YOU CAN GET INVOLVED IN YOUR UNISON BRANCH. In the ever changing world of a busy NHS Trust, your feedback and engagement is vital. With so many members working in so many buildings spread across such a large geography, keeping in touch with you is both vital and challenging.

With so many members working in so many buildings spread across such a large geography, keeping in touch with you is both vital and challenging.

We therefore need you to be proactive in keeping engaged with our communications, whether through our facebook page, twitter account, this website or our internal email newsletter The Fiver. It cannot be underestimated how reliant we are on your feedback for good quality input into all the staff side meetings we attend. Afterall, you are the expert on your workplace!

The reason this branch is so effective is because we have strength in numbers. We have over 30 dedicated stewards, workplace reps and health and safety reps, working for you day in day out, supporting members individually and collectively, from small issues impacting on a team to large issues impacting on the whole workforce.

However, there is no denying that we could always do with more activists taking on the roles of stewards, health and safety reps and branch officers. We are able to offer mentoring and access to great training, so if you are interested please drop us a line and we can come and meet you for a chat!
