About Aberdeenshire UNISON
Aberdeenshire Branch has members working for several employers,
We share an Area resource centre with Aberdeen City, Moray, Shetland,
Orkney and the Health Branches.
UNISON members are people working in the public services, for private
contractors providing public services and the essential utilities.
They include manual and white collar staff working full or part
time in local authorities, the NHS, colleges and schools, the electricity,
gas and water industries, transport and the voluntary sector.
Most people join a union because they want protection at work -
help with pay and conditions of service, legal or health and safety
advice or representation in case things go wrong at work. That's
what we're here for.
UNISON negotiates on pay and working conditions at every level
- local, regional and national. But we also do a lot more. Being
a UNISON member gives you a range of benefits and unbeatable deals.
Every member of UNISON belongs to a local branch which is made
up of people working for the same employer.
Local stewards are there to represent you at work and help find
the answers to your problems. They are volunteers and play a vital
role in recruiting new members and organising your branch.
If you have a problem, talk to your local steward. If they can't
handle the problem on their own, they can talk to other branch officers
or full - time union experts on your behalf. Anyone can face problems
at work sometimes but if you are a member of UNISON, you don't have
to face them alone.
We can provide advice or representation on things like pay, rotas,
leave and sickness procedures. We are also there to help you make
sure your workplace is healthy and safe, support you in case of
disciplinary action, dismissals or redundancy.
