Four week rule when joining UNISON
Thursday, 13 April 2017 13:36

* If I join today can you represent me straight away?

You will need to have been a member for at least four weeks to qualify for some of our benefits and help. This means that we cannot represent a very new member and even if we did so, if the matter were to escalate to the extent that a union official (or solicitor) needed to become involved, the following rule is strictly applied. Section K 2 (i) of the UNISON Rule Book says "The member must have been in membership of the union for at least 4 weeks prior to the incident or occurrence that leads to her/him seeking legal assistance from the Union.". The rule also applies to members who have 4 weeks, or more, arrears of subscriptions.

UNISON Q & A
Thursday, 28 July 2016 10:26

How can I join UNISON? I need to speak to somebody about a problem at work, but I work different shifts to my UNISON rep and I can’t get to a phone during office hours.

I want to join UNISON but I don’t have access to email.

What should I do? You can phone UNISONdirect on 0800 0 857 857 and they will send you an application form. Lines are open Monday-Friday 6am-midnight and Saturdays 9am-4pm.

I work in the public sector but my job has been outsourced to a private company. Can I still join UNISON? Yes. Just join in the usual way – or if you are already a member, but your employer has changed, let us know by email or by phoning UNISONdirect on Text tel: 0800 0 857 857.

I’m worried that my employer won’t like me joining UNISON and I don’t want to make trouble for myself. It’s your legal right to join a trade union and your employer cannot legally prevent you from joining. Talk to your colleagues who are already members of UNISON – there is strength in numbers.

I’ve just moved house. How can I change my details on your system? You can update your details online here. You will need to have your membership number to hand. Alternatively, phone UNISONdirect on 0800 0 857 857. Lines are open Monday-Friday 6am-midnight and Saturdays 9am-4pm. I’ve lost my application form to join UNISON. How can I get hold of another one? Ask your UNISON steward, or phone UNISONdirect on 0800 0 857 857. Lines are open Monday-Friday 6am-midnight and Saturdays 9am-4pm. There isn’t a UNISON branch where I work, but I still want to join UNISON. What should I do? You can join UNISON in the usual way – and why not start a branch yourself? UNISON will provide you with information and support, and then you can start recruiting your colleagues.
