Getting involved

Become a Steward or Workplace Contact

All members of City of Sunderland UNISON Branch can attend branch meetings, vote and stand in branch elections and get involved in our campaigns and activities.

We are always looking for people who feel they can contribute to the branch and to helping other members.  This could be a regular commitment or just the occasional hour or so.  You don’t need experience to be a representative.  UNISON provides training and support.

What is a UNISON Workplace Representative?

A workplace representative is an employee of an organisation or company but is also a union official who represents and defends the interests of his or her fellow employees.  A workplace representative is UNISON’s most important link between the union and it’s members.

If you would like further information or would like to become a steward or a workplace contact, please contact the branch office on 0191 5532730.
