The Ryedale Branch of UNISON represents members from Ryedale District Council in the Local Government sector, plus members employed by Yorkshire Housing and Sports & Leisure Management (SLM) Ltd. in the Community sector.
The branch is run by a committed group of individuals who believe in public services and the public sector ethos. Despite being a small branch we provide strong support for members who encounter problems at work and organise a varied programme of social events for members to enjoy.
UNISON prides itself on being a member-led organisation that operates not only as a bargaining and negotiating body but also as a campaigning group.
UNISON is one of the UK’s largest trade unions, serving more than 1.3 million members. We represents full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors.
