UNISON is launching a legal helpline to assist hard-pressed activists needing urgent legal advice.
The helpline will launch on 1 May and has been set up in response to feedback from UNISON activists. It aims to provide urgent initial legal help on employment matters.
Launching the helpline, general secretary Dave Prentis said: "Our activists are working hard to look after our members and this government is set on making their lives harder. Activists told us they needed access to quick legal advice and this is what the helpline aims to provide."
The helpline will be monitored and reviewed to make sure the service it is providing an effective and efficient service.
