About the branch

 

UNISON is the largest public sector trade union in the country with 1.3 million members.

In Ealing we are the largest trade union and represent members who provide public services across the borough.

People join a trade union for all sorts of reasons.  But in the end they join because a union gets a better deal for them at work.  employers negotiate with unions, not individuals.  By working together union members can win – and protect – pay and conditions worthy of the valuable jobs they do.

Being a union member gives you a say in your working life and powerful support if you are treated unfairly.

Without a union behind you, who will you turn to:

  • if you are victimised?
  • if your job is threatened?
  • if you have a regrading claim?
  • if you have a grievance?
  • if you are disciplined?
  • if you have concerns about a health & safety issue?

Ealing Unison Branch has trained Stewards (representatives) and experienced Officers who are involved in both council wide negotiation on items such as policies, procedures, reorganisations, as well as dealing with individual casework from teams spanning the entire authority and outsourced services.

As well as negotiating with employers on pay and conditions UNISON provides a wide range of services to individual members including:

  • financial services
  • legal services
  • holiday services
  • welfare services

These services are either provided directly by UNISON or offered by, or in conjunction with, UNISON’s affinity partners, organisations with close links to UNISON, who share our ambition to provide the best range of benefits to our members.

A trade union is as strong as its members.  Ealing Unison is no exception.  UNISON is an open and democratic union, where individual members can play a full part in the branch, in the workplace, t branch meetings and in campaigns.

Ealing Unison is committed to ending discrimination at work.  The fight against discrimination wherever it occurs – in pay, conditions or prospects – is at the heart of UNISON’s work in getting a fair deal for all its members.

So, get active in your union!
