Branches are the bedrock of the union: without them there would be no union to support members at work and negotiate for a better deal on behalf of Blackpool Local Govt. members.
UNISON members are automatically members of one of our 1,200 branches. Branches locally organised groups of members. Like most branches, we cover members working for a number of employers in the Blackpool Area. Our larger employers include Blackpool Council, Fylde Council, Blackpool Coastal Housing, Blackpool Housing Company, ENVECO and local schools and academies such as FCAT, BEBCMAT and council maintained schools in Blackpool. We also have members in many local private sector employers in the care sector, catering and cleaning providing services to the public sector.
