Welcome to the website of the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) Branch of UNISON. UNISON is by far the biggest union in the NWAS and is the United Kingdom’s largest union with more than 1.4 million members.
This site has been created to give you, our members as much information as possible and to allow for better communication between members and their representatives of which we have more than any other union. The Pandemic has made it more difficult for us to meet up face to face with our members so we have now set up the facility to have one to one or group video conference calls to ensure we maximise the safety for everyone. Of course, we are more than happy to meet up face to face when it is safe to do so.
All of your representatives work for NWAS and they do same job as you so anything that affects you also affects them in exactly the same way. All of our stewards are ERA accredited so you can be confident that they know what they are doing, and they have to renew this accreditation every 5 years.
We are proud to represent over 4000 members that includes frontline ambulance staff including the Patient Transport Service, Emergency Operations Centres and 111, Workshop Staff and Corporate members.
Our continuing growth each year is a clear demonstration of the service that we provide to our members and we continually strive to improve on this day by day. If you have any ideas to improve our site, please contact us and let us know.
