Membership for Apprentices and Students
Apprentice and Student (without employment with an eligible employer) membership is just £10 per year whilst you remain an Apprentice or Student. You will need to complete the correct Direct Debit form and return it to us, or signup online. However, it is your responsibility to ensure payments continue to be entitled to full Apprentice/Student membership benefits.
N.B If your bank fails to make a membership payment, UNISON will not attempt to take payment again. This is to prevent putting our members into hardship through bank charges.
N.B. You cannot be discriminated against for Trade Union membership - this is a protected right in law and your employer must permit UNISON to support you in statutory meetings (e.g. disciplinary and grievance hearings) and those permitted by recognition agreements.
"Ok, I'm in. What do I need to do?"
We will need your signature on an Apprentice or Student membership form for us to be able to collect your membership directly from your bank or building society. You can either contact us for the correct Direct Debit membership form or download the Apprenticeship one here or the Student one here. Please return it directly to the branch for us to process:
UNISON Blackpool LG Branch
17 -19 Abingdon Street
You can also sign-up online.
