The Role of Croydon
- To consult, negotiate and
protect – working for your interests.
Where does it all start?
- Representation begins in your workplace with your
local Steward or Health & Safety Rep.
This will be a colleague who has volunteered to take on this role.
They are trained by UNISON
to look after your welfare in the workplace.
- They will also have a role to
play at Branch level on issues that affect staff working for the London Borough of
Croydon. Senior Representatives
from Croydon UNISON attend the Corporate Staff Consultation Meetings and
the Croydon Staff Partnership Panel.
The purpose of these Meetings are to provide a forum for the
recognised Trade Unions and Council Officers and Members to consult and
negotiate on the introduction of new policies and any changes both locally
and nationally to your terms & conditions.
- Croydon UNISON also sends
representatives to UNISON’s Regional and National Committees who in turn
elect delegates who along with Full
Time Officers meet with the National Employers organisation.
