There are some important changes taking place within the Unite representatives groups at SPS.
Following a difficult year for all workers, we would like to thank you for your hard work and contribution you made during the pandemic. As a result of direct feedback form members Unite were able to shape and develop the response that SPS made through the first lockdown. We were the very first union to make representation to all Site Ops employers at the start of the second lockdown, recognising the challenge this may pose to working families and vulnerable groups.
As we emerge out of lockdown, Unite intend to remodel the way we respond to members needs, offering better communication and accountability, whilst maintaining the high standards of representation we have always offered to our members.
Unite is the ONLY recognised union in SPS and therefore the ONLY union able to give you a strong voice. Because of the way we are organised within SPS, you will always be consulted on issues of importance, ultimately resulting in membership ballots giving us an indicative outcome prior to any agreements being struck.
UNITE ARE THE ONLY UNION ABLE TO DO THIS WITHIN SPS!
