Waltham Forest UNISON is the largest union representing council staff in Waltham Forest. Are you a Union Rep who would like to get more involved in the Branch? If so we are looking for a Branch Secretary who will take the branch forward in the future when the current post-holder retires next year.
Key tasks include:
Developing and supporting Reps and Branch Officers
- Leading the Union in collective negotiations
- Campaigning within UNISON and the local community on relevant issues such as the living wage
- Running the Branch office and supervising branch employees
The Branch has gone through lots of change in recent years and we are looking to build it up again following the loss of Reps through the cuts. The role is demanding but always interesting and attracts a full time secondment. Training is provided by UNISON region on the role of the branch secretary and developing leadership skills.
If you would like an informal chat about the post or more information please contact Chris Street or Julia Poynter at the Branch Office.
Women and BME members are under-represented in UNISON leadership roles and we would like to encourage applications from these members.
