Well it has taken a while but finally Hackney Unison has an online presence, a place where members can share their views, raise their concerns and take the branch to task on the issues affecting us all.
Hackney Unison is a large trade union branch representing nearly 60% of all permanent eligible workers providing local government services for the Council, Hackney Homes, the Learning Trust and numerous private sector employer throughout the borough.
There are tough times ahead and naturally staff are feeling anxious about their future and therefore it is so much more important to ensure that the union is organised and active so that we can stand up to the challenges that face our members in the years ahead.
That’s just one reason why we needed to get ourselves into the 21st century by providing members with an online resource. However this is just the beginning, in the coming months we are planning to set up a proper website but in the mean time we hope members will find this blog useful.
To find out more about Unison and the services we can offer you then please contact the branch office, likewise if you want to get more involved with your union then again drop us a line or pop into the branch office in the town hall and one of our representatives will be more than happy to assist.
Remember together we are stronger so if you take an interest in how your employer is performing and how that affects you then keep watching this space.
