Representing members

Anyone can face problems at work sometimes but if you are a member of UNISON, you don't have to face them alone. We can provide advice or representation on things like pay & benefits, rotas, leave and sickness procedures. We can also support you in case of disciplinary action, dismissals or redundancy.

You may want to know your UNISON branch officers & workplace steward who are at the centre of the branch's activity. All officers and stewards are democratically elected volunteers, and are essential to being able to offer the support our members need.
