The next regional forum for BAOT Shop Stewards in the London Region will be on 2nd December, 09.30-12.30 at Unison HQ.
Are you a BAOT steward, or are you interested in finding out more about the role? It involves taking a lead on both trade union and professional association issues in the workplace, promoting membership and communicating with members.
BAOT stewards have recently been busy organising the industrial action in health and local government to secure decent pay for OTs. Stewards also negotiate with managers around professional issues such as safe workloads, training, appraisals and supervision as well as trade union issues such as health and safety, pay and expenses. They also represent individual members in grievances, disciplinaries and sickness hearings.
Full training is available from Unison and facility time is negotiated to allow you to perform your role during work hours. It’s a vital and rewarding role! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
