FEBRUARY IS RAYNAUD'S AWARENESS MONTH 



Do your hands, fingers or toes ever look white or blueish/ purple?  1 in 6 people in the UK live with Raynaud's, a condition that affects the blood supply to certain parts of the body - usually the fingers and toes.

For further information on this go to the Branch SOGs page and click on Disability Information to learn more about Raynaud's 


2018
JOIN TODAY 

The first month has already gone before we know it.  The reviews and changes are continuing for the whole of the force.  Consultations still continue from last year and new ones begin.

Still the force are told to SAVE SAVE SAVE which unfortunately equates to CUT CUT CUT.  We can help support you and offer advice if you are a member.  Don’t go it alone.

This is a difficult time and our members have joined the union because they know it makes sense to have support in the workplace.  Please encourage your colleagues who are not members to join, explain why itis so important in these uncertain times.  Tell them not to leave it too late.

Click the email link above and fill in a membership form and send it to the Unison Admin Office at HQ.




CALLING ALL PCSO's

CALLING ALL PCSO's

 Police Officer rules and regulations are not your 
rules and regulations. 

You are police staff there are fundamental differences 

You have some rights that Police Officers do not 

If you are not a member give it serious consideration
we are here to protect your rights.




STEWARDS NEEDED

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE 

With all the changes and upheaval going on in the Force we are extremely busy.  We desperately need some new Stewards to cover East and West and North of the county. If you are a member, please give it some thought.  But we would love to have stewards across the divisions.  

You would be fully trained and you would be entitled to facility time (see facilities agreement in Library on the website) to undertake the role. This means you are allowed to undertake the role in work time  It gives you access to all sorts of training to prepare you to be able to deal with many different issues.  

Helping colleagues is extremely rewarding and teaches many life skills useful in everyday life. Help us make a difference.  See the small video below. If you would like to chat about becoming a steward please drop us an email at.. admin@sussexpoliceunison.org ..  or give us a call.  



HEALTH AND SAFETY

REPORT REPORT REPORT    

If you have an injury/incident at work or a near miss that is health and safety related REPORT on the FIAMS system. Go to the front page of the Intranet click on Health and Safety on the left hand side of your screen.
Then click on the box that says 'Incidents & Assaults - Reporting and Managing', then click on the 'Incident & Assault Web Form' and log in and fill in.  This is important even if it seems like a small insignificant injury/incident or near miss.  Remember something small can end up a lot bigger.  By reporting the H&S Unit can monitor incidents and injuries and take appropriate action or sanction measures to stop/reduce or alieviate the same incident/assault occurring again.


HAZARDS/DANGERS

Take Ownership 

If you see a hazard or something that appears dangerous in your work place.  DO NOT ignore.  Report to your local facilities officer or report it on 544444 choosing facilities option.  Stop the problem getting bigger or someone getting injured. 

If you think Health and Safety is being breached or compromised then email Unison admin@sussexpoliceunison.org. If not a member ask a member to email  The Health and Safety officer can look into the problem.  This also applies if you have personal H&S issues you feel are not being met, if you are a member contact us at the office.
