Support for UNISON Representatives in the WET Service Group

Back to all Motions

2019 Water, Environment & Transport Conference
29 January 2019

As staffing levels plummet in both the public and private sectors, UNISON representatives in the areas covered by the WET Service Group find themselves dealing with more and more cases including those of stress and mental health.

This in turn puts pressure on representatives themselves who get personally involved in some such cases and require more support than is currently available.

Conference calls on the WETSGE to work with all appropriate areas in UNISON and outside if necessary, to develop a package of assistance for representatives who may suffer ill health as a result of supporting members.
