Retired membership of Unison

If you are thinking of retiring from UWE at some time in the near future, you might like to consider taking up retired membership. For a one-off payment of £15 you would retain access to a wide range of financial, legal and welfare benefits.

You would also be able to continue to play an active part in your union, through conferences and branch meetings, and continue to have a voice in UNISON’s democracy.

UNISON has a dynamic retired members’ section with regional and national retired members committees, who make sure your voice is heard within the union.

Through this Retired Members’ section, UNISON works alongside organisations such as the National Pensioners’ Convention (NPC) to campaign on issues important to “today’s and tomorrow’s pensioners.”

You would elect a Retired Members’ Secretary every year to keep you informed about all the above.

To apply, see Join UWE UNISON, for the form and where to send it.

We look forward to welcoming you to our group!

Helen Hopwood, Retired Members’ Secretary, May 2017
