What We Do

We represent members and negotiate with management on their behalf. We promote the health and safety of our members in their workplace. The Branch takes part in campaigns in support of public services and organises social events such as quiz nights & trips to sporting fixtures. We hope you will use this website to keep up with what’s going on in the Branch, download the newsletter or to seek advice.
