Branch Secretary :

Calling All Reps and Activists!

Unite has now announced the date of the next national Housing Reps Forum. This meeting involving all branches representing members in housing associations and other housing bodies is a great opportunity for reps to meet and build campaigns across the sector.


We’ve developed a common advance pay claim and built a campaign to roll it out. The solidarity has also helped us to win disputes in some high-profile housing associations. The meeting is open to any member interested in building a union presence and campaigning for better pay and conditions in their workplace:


11th September
11am – 4pm
Unite HQ, 128 Theobalds Road, London WC1X 8TN (map)


Our sector is financially very healthy and top executives are handsomely paid. Nonetheless workers are told that there is no money for pay rises or to employ sufficient staff numbers.


Unite is saying enough is enough. It is time to win our fair share! Join us for a day of discussion and planning. As one of the attendees at the last meeting reported:


“It’s been brilliant meeting other reps at these events. The solidarity we’ve built has made my job a lot easier with useful information and fresh ideas.”


Housing Association Rep


Unite will meet reasonable travel expenses in line with the Unite Expenses Policy and lunch will be provided.


Please register your attendance with so that we know how many to cater for.
