Merger between L&Q, Hyde Group and East Thames Housing Associations
What is UNISON’s role in the merger?
UNISON will be taking an active approach to working with the employers during this period of change and our top priority will be to ensure that our members' jobs and conditions of employment are protected.
UNISON is the recognised trade union for East Thames, Hyde and L&Q, which means that we are the union who speak for staff in all these organisations. We have active and organised shops and stewards in all three Housing Associations.
What will UNISON be doing next?
Over the next few weeks we’ll be holding members' meetings across all three Housing Associations;we will be in touch with dates once these are arranged. During this period of change we’ll be updating members regularly and we want to hear from you about your questions and concerns. Get intouch with your local stewards or contact the branch office.
What can I do?
Please share this with your colleagues and invite them to join UNISON, which they can do by going to www.joinunison.org or with the attached membership form. The more staff we represent, the stronger our voice will be when we talk to management. We're also keen to hear frommembers who would like to take a more active role in the union
Now is the time to get involved! Speak to your local steward or contact the branch office for more information.
