If you are leaving on Voluntary Redundancy and wish to maintain your Unison membership of the branch, there are several options:
- If you are retired, in receipt of a pension and not intending to seek further alternative employment, why not become a retired member for a one off fee of £15 for life. This maintains you right to legal advice from solicitors if required. A retired membership form is available from the branch office. The Retired Members’ group usually meets once a month and also has an annual holiday at Croyde Bay in May and organises day trips and other social occasions.
- If you are seeking alternative employment but haven’t found anything yet – you can become an unemployed member of the branch at a cost of £4 per year up to a maximum of 2 years. All you need to do is send a letter in writing to the branch indicating you wish to become an unemployed member and send a cheque for £4 made payable to Unison.
- Got another job? If within the public or voluntary sector, you can join another Unison branch.
