Several Capita employees approached UNISON office staff when distributing the last edition of ‘Branch Lines’. Many of them were unaware that Capita staff could also be UNISON members. We’d like to make clear that any member of staff working for Capita – whether you were transferred in from WSCC or not – can be a member of the union.
Indeed, we’d love you to join us. We have hundreds of Capita members already signed up and we’ve supported them through many challenging situations. Capita has a national ‘recognition agreement’ with the union, meaning that it formally recognises the union as the body representing members of its own workforce on employment-related issues.
We have workplace reps who work for Capita such as Ian Harvey, Mervyn Sams, Kim Unwin, Abigail Holdsworth, Denise Stephens and Graeme Brookes-Butt.
So if you want to join us, don’t listen to anyone who says you can’t do so because you work for Capita. It’s simply not true. Why not join us online?
We look forward to hearing from you.
