Welcome to Unison
Bedfordshire Hospitals Branch
UNISON members are people working in the public services, for private contractors providing public services and the essential utilities. They include manual and white collar staff working full or part time in local authorities, the NHS, colleges and schools, the electricity, gas and water industries, transport and the voluntary sector.
Local stewards are there to represent you at work and help find the answers to your problems. They are volunteers and play a vital role in recruiting new members and organising your branch.
Help Us Fight the Poor Pay Rise Offer!
NHS staff were offered a 1% pay rise, which has now been increased to 3%.
THIS IS STILL NOT ENOUGH.
At UNISON Bedfordshire Health, we believe this offer falls far short of what is deserved.
It’s time to end structural poverty pay in the NHS.
Our branch will be focusing on spreading the word and campaigning for better pay in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for your branch reps on both Luton and Bedford sites!

It’s Time to Disable Inequality
We want to help staff recognise and challenge disability discrimination in the workplace. We will support staff and help them support each other as we work together to take on disability discrimination and deliver an NHS that respects and values all staff.
