Both nationally and regionally we have a growing number of members who work for the Royal National Institute for Blind People, and have supported members within the organisation for a number of years.
We can now confirm that after
lengthy negotiations and work both nationally and regionally we have a formal
recognition agreement with them. This agreement will enable us to work more
closely with our members and the organisation improving the working lives of the
staff. It will also enable us to attend meetings and actively recruit new
members from the charity.
This agreement is a huge success for the UNISON staff
and activists who have been involved with the negotiations but also heralds a
new chapter in members and the union’s relationship with RNIB.
