Can I contact any steward?

Yes - you can speak to any of the stewards (or contact any of the Branch Officers) and they will try to help you, or make sure that you are directed to the right place to get the information you need.

Why are UNISON stewards important?

Stewards are the backbone of UNISON. Stewards act as the link between members and the union, and are in the best position to understand colleagues' needs and concerns.

Can I become a steward?

Yes! We are always keen to hear from people who would like to take on the important task of being a UNISON steward. If you are interested, then please contact the branch via UNISON at warwick dot ac dot uk.
