Get involved

The Camden UNISON branch is run by its members: employees of the council and its subcontractors.

We always need new people to get involved to make the union as active and dynamic as possible and ensure that it is as representative as possible of its membership.

There are many ways to get more involved in the union. You can decide on your own level of involvement, there is full support from a large network of experienced local reps and branch officers, as well as support from UNISON regionally and from UNISON’s solicitors.

For certain roles, paid time off is provided for union activities, and paid time off is available to undertake free training courses.

So don’t delay, help your co-workers today and get involved.
