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.

ENABLE DROP IN SESSIONS


Enable (Sussex Police Disability and Carers Association) have once again joined forces with Unison and the Police Federation in planning some FREE tea and coffee drop in sessions for November and December to tie in with Disability History Month which runs from 22nd November – 22nd December 2018.

We want to raise awareness of issues surrounding disabled staff and officers by offering some informal opportunities for you to pop in, share your thoughts or even get things ‘off your chest’.  There is no need to book, no formality involved, just pop in and meet us, chat about relevant topics OR just say hello, enjoy a free cuppa, and dip out when you have had enough.

 he dates and venues for the events are as follows:

  • Wednesday 28th November 2018 – 11.00-13.00 – Briefing Room, 1st Floor, Hastings Police Station
  • Tuesday 4th December 2018 – 11.00-13.00 – Haywards Heath Police Station, central ground floor area (below mezzanine)
  • Monday 10th December 2018 – 11.00-13.00 – Amberley Block Conference Room, HQ Lewes
  • Tuesday 17th December 2018 - 11.00-13.00 - Centenary House, Durrington, Briefing Room

 The aims of the events are:

·        Promote disability issues

·        Promote carers responsibilities and issues

·        Reduce the stigma associated with disabilities

·       Eliminate negative attitudes and prejudice from         employers, colleagues and service users

·       Develop an understanding of reasonable                   adjustments to support anyone with a disability

We will send you meeting invitations for all 4 sessions so you can pop them into your diaries.  It would be great if you could pop along to one of the sessions, even if you only have 5 minutes to spare.

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.
