You can help your colleagues and fellow UNISON members tackle this and other issues by becoming a UNISON rep or workplace contact. Our activists and reps are organisers who talk to, recruit and organise members around workplace issues, hold meetings, undertake surveys and help run ballots. They give members information about union issues by publicising campaigns, distributing leaflets and keeping members informed about and involved in local negotiations. They are advisers and sounding boards, talking to members about workplace problems, advising on how to deal with these and arranging for help or advice from elsewhere in the union or other sources. They represent and speak on behalf of members in their workplace. Become a rep. Rosenkranz Foundation. Policy Exchange. Trade Union Disability Alliance. About the TUC. In the regions. About Southern and Eastern TUC SERTUC, the Southern & Eastern Region of the TUC, is the largest of the TUC's six English regions and covers three of the former government regions: London, the South East, and East of England.

In the regions

Over two million trades unionists live and work within the region. The Regional Council is appointed annually by affiliates and county associations of trades councils and meets four times a year to discuss both how to achieve policy determined at the national Trades Union Congress and to make specific policies on regional issues. At its Annual General Meeting, it elects officers and an Executive Committee that meets monthly. Affiliated trade unions and county associations also nominate to SERTUC's industrial and equality subgroups who use their industrial and life experience to inform the activities of the Regional Council.
