UNISON North Yorkshire relies on its volunteers on the ground, but in some workplaces we don’t have a contact or steward. We’re looking for people to step forward to help themselves and their colleagues.

Become a Steward

Become a Steward
A UNISON Steward is a key link between members and the union. Stewards can talk to members about workplace problems, advise them and keep them informed of latest developments, represent members in your workplace, organise and recruit new members.
Different stewards get involved in different activities depending on experience, skills and time factors. You won't be forced to do anything you don't want to do and we will offer you training and backup.

UNISON is very much in favour of job sharing for stewards. This way you can spread the load, work together and support each other. If you know a work colleague whose interested—do it together!

To find out more and have a chat about becoming a steward please contact Gill Robinson on g.robinson@unison.co.uk or 07903 846649


Workplace Contact
Workplace Contact
If you are not sure about being a steward you can volunteer to be a workplace contact. Workplace contacts have a more informal role than stewards or safety representatives. Their main job is to make sure members receive union and other important information as well as being the first point of contact. To volunteer as a workplace contact please call the branch office on 01609 532670.
