UNISON is delighted to announce the opening of its new offices in Ashington, Northumberland. This is a joint project between its Northumberland Local Government, Northumbria Healthcare and Northumberland, Tyne & Wear NHS Trust Branches and will be officially open from Tuesday 18th August.
The offices will be used as a resource centre with meeting and training facilities for members as well as a drop in facility for members seeking advice or guidance on employment issues. The shop is a great asset and a place where UNISON members can join up, get advice and support, and report problems.
This is an exciting initiative and the first of its kind in the Northern Region. Unison is very pleased to be opening these offices which will ensure it is more visible to the public and its members. The geographical spread of these three Branches in the Region is vast and this venture will enable our members and activists to have a central location in Northumberland which is welcoming and accessible.
The dedicated UNISON shop is situated at 94 Station Road, Ashington, NE63 8RS and is one of a number of shop-style Branch Offices across the UK which help make UNISON more visible in the community.
