HAVE SOME INFLUENCE 
 AND HELP COLLEAGUES AT THE SAME TIME

Workplace stewards are the heart of our trade union. UNISON’s stewards are the reason we win campaigns that result in better lives for our members and all working people. Stewards help to organise your colleagues into an effective, strong and welcoming membership. They:

  • Are the first point of contact for members in a workplace
  • Talk to members about the union
  • Talk to staff about their issues
  • Offer advice on issues at work
  • Represent members in cases (including at disciplinary and grievance hearings).
  • Campaign for better working conditions
  • Recruit and organise new members
  • Encourage more members to get active in UNISON
  • Raise your members’ issues with the branch.

Stewards in workplaces where UNISON is recognised by the employer have rights to take time for training and to carry out their work.

Stewards have a right to be involved in how their branch is run and are the most important link between the members and the union.

UNISON aims to have at least one steward in each workplace and department, more in larger departments and where members work shifts.

Stewards are elected each year by the group of members that they represent and the post is open to job share

Please give it some thought.  We know you are all really busy and under pressure but we need your help and the more stewards we have the more we can spread the work across the county so each steward only has a small amount to do.

WELLBEING AND MENTAL HEATLH POLICY

The information from the Stress survey is currently been analysed and formatted.  I am making good progress towards hopefully getting a specific policy for Wellbeing and Mental Health taken on by the Force. Enable have also come on board and are fully involved in this process too. The Mental Health Working Group has also being relaunched by the Force where this proposed policy can be pulled together ensuring it encompasses all necessary areas.  I am currently receiving policies from other forces via Unison Branch Secretaries and also how effective they are, which will enable us to ensure we have an effective and workable policy. 
I will keep you posted.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

   ACCIDENT - INJURY - NEAR MISS 

Related image


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 Health and Safety Unit can monitor incidents and injuries and take appropriate action or sanction measures to stop/reduce or alleviate the same incident/assault occurring again.





VIRTUALLY EVERYBODY AT SOMETIME IN THEIR LIFE WILL BE AFFECTED BY STRESS

Union membership for Agency Workers

An agency worker is entitled to join a trade union. A trade union can:

  • provide support and advice on a wide range of issues

  • provide a representative to accompany the agency worker to a grievance or disciplinary hearing

  • collectively consult with the agency where the union is recognised.

Agency workers must not be treated unfairly by their agency because they are a member or non­ member of a trade union.
