About the branch

North Lincolnshire Branch of UNISON has approximately 2,000 members and 80 different employers, including:

  • North Lincolnshire Council
  • Ongo
  • Colleges including John Leggott and North Lindsey
  • Schools and Academies
  • Humberside Airport
  • Care homes and care agencies

Providing support to members is a great challenge. I am very grateful for the work that our dedicated UNISON Stewards provide. We are always seeking new Stewards to help members when they need assistance.

75% of this Branch membership is in North Lincolnshire Council, therefore a significant proportion of my work is within this area. I am involved in a large number of departmental reviews and my priority is always to ensure that no UNISON member is made compulsory redundant.

I represent members in disciplinaries, grievances and sickness absence and also represent collectively in NLC JCC’s, trying my hardest to resolve difficulties and reaching satisfactory outcomes for UNISON members.

I look forward to further great developments in the North Lincolnshire Branch, following our move to Church Square House, where we are much more accessible and in touch with UNISON members.
