Oxfordshire UNISON health branch has over 3,000 members who work in Oxfordshire's NHS and associated health services.  This gives members a collective voice in consultations and negotiations with employers, and enables members to organise to improve their pay and conditions, and for a safer working environment.  The power in a union rests in the members collective action.  The branch is organised by branch members elected to be officers and stewards.  All members are entitled to stand for positons in the union, both local, regional and national.

Over 6 million people in the UK are members of a trade union, with 1.3 million of them being members of UNISON.  UNISON has produced a useful leaflet on what a trade union can do.

All branch officers and workplace representatives have to be elected anually.  All branch members are entitled to stand for positions, though some roles are only open to sections of the branch membership e.g. Woman's officer position is only open to women etc.  

If you wish to know more about the roles of officers and stewards this guide carries information about the responsibilities of each role.  Full training is available paid for by UNISON.

If you wish to stand as an officer or workplace representative please complete the nomination form and return to Jane Lacey, branch secretary by 12 noon Thursday 21st December, using the details shown on the form.

The results of any election will take place at the Annual General Meeting on 2nd February and the newly elected officers and workplace representatives will take up their roles then.
