Developing and supporting activists is a crucial role for all UNISON branches – it is also crucial to developing our union.
UNISON is committed to providing opportunities to enable activists to fulfil their role effectively. By providing each new activist with a named contact who can encourage them and point them in the right direction, branches can support them through every stage of their development.
Our objective is to ensure that we have reps who are trained and active across all workplaces where there are UNISON members. The ‘Trained and Active’ plan and accompanying branch guide provides a step-by-step process to help branches achieve that.
The plan is provided here in two formats – a standard PDF for printing, and an editable PDF which can be filled in electronically and saved. And branches can order hard copies from the UNISON shop.
