The  Suffragette Bus Tour is free to members

To end the year that has seen many celebrations take place throughout the country marking 100 Years of the Vote for some women, a suffragette bus tour has been organised as part of the regional women's committee Women's History month activities which started in March.   We have also invited some women from the Labour Party to join us - a mix of MP's and candidates.  There is a limited number of seats which will be allocated on a first come basis.  The tour is free to members however, branches will be required to meet travel costs and subsistence so I hope that branches will be able to support members who would like to attend.

The leaflet and details are on the website (link below) application form is on the link

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.

PCSO'S ARE UNDERTAKING MORE AND MORE TASKS THAT POLICE OFFICERS WERE DOING BUT WHAT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG?  WHO WILL SUPPORT YOU?

BECOMING A MEMBER WILL GIVE YOU THE PEACE
OF MIND THAT WE CAN GIVE YOU SUPPORT SHOULD YOU EVER NEED IT

POLICE OFFICERS JOIN THE FEDERATION FOR SUPPORT

 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

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.
