New Stewards add to UNISON’s strength in Durham and Middlesbrough

UNISON Northern Region strengthened its team of workplace activists with a highly successful Workplace Stewards course held in County Durham. The flexible, modular training course covered the topics of UNISON’s structure, equality issues, recruitment, representation and employment law.

The eight talented and committed women members volunteered to become trained stewards to strengthen UNISON within their workplaces.

Over 70% of UNISON’s membership is female and our new female stewards have advanced the union closer to full proportionality and fair representation. We hope to see many more women taking up the mantle of becoming active within UNISON and, together, building a stronger union.
