Adults’ & Children’s Services negotiations: could you help our team?

UNISON West Sussex relies on our members to inform and support our negotiations with employers. Our branch officers know a lot about policy and employment law but we don’t know the minutiae or your everyday job! Therefore members doing the day job in the workplace support our Branch Secretary Dan Sartin and Deputy Branch Secretary Karen Daubney in regular discussions with service directors Mark Howell and Annie MacIver. Members help ensure that we bring the right issues to the attention of the Directors and help ensure the right solutions are put in place for staff.

The branch has benefitted from tremendous support from Penny Marks-Billson in Adults Services and Paul Windsor in Children’s Services. But both have recently left the council to work for other local authorities.

We would particularly like a qualified social worker from both AS and CS to join us in our regular discussions with the Directors.

Could this be you? If is an opportunity to make a big difference to where you work, and the time commitment is not onerous. Expenses to attend meetings and the paid time to do so are permitted.

Please email if you are interested to find out more and we will arrange a time to call you back.
