Get your 2016 UNISON Diary!

UNISON 2016 DiaryAt this time of year the branch would usually send out the annual diary, however after feedback from last year's AGM this year we've decided that we won't automatically send out diaries.

Instead we'll have some of our snazzy new UNISON 2016 Diaries ready you to pick up from our regular stalls, and your local stewards.  This means that we don't need to order as many diaries this year, so they will be distributed on a "first come, first served basis".

Don't Leave It Too Late!

Did you know that certain membership benefits are subject to a waiting period before you can take advantage of them?

Although we will deal with new members' problems immediately, providing you with advice and support through the local network of stewards and contacts, if the problem is particularly complex, requires legal advice or support, or if it becomes necessary to take a case to an employment tribunal, then you must have been a member for at least four weeks under UNISON's national rules.

So remember, joining and staying in UNISON gives you the full protection of all UNISON's services.

Don't delay - join today!
