About Us

Welcome to the website of the North Devon & Exeter (NDE) Branch of UNISON.

We're the largest trade union representing, campaigning and negotiating for workers across the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and private employers.

Our Members

UNISON members are people working in the public services, for private contractors providing public services and the essential utilities. They include frontline staff and managers working full or part time in local authorities, the NHS, the police service, colleges and schools, the electricity, gas and water industries, transport and the voluntary sector.

Our Stewards

We have a team of accredited local representatives made up of workers across the trust and private employers. Are you interested in helping your colleagues at work? Contact Us for more information

Our Campaign

UNISON campaigns and lobbies on key issues affecting our members and the public at large. We’re working to protect and improve public services, win equal pay and employment rights for everyone, improve safety in the workplace and end discrimination and harassment at work.

If you're in a union, you're never alone.

We live in unsettling times. The NHS is under immense pressure to deliver on a budget that has been cut since 2010, that means more pressure on staff, there has never been a more important time to ensure that your concerns are heard and by joining a union you are being part of that collective voice.

Our branch uses a modern and secure system to handle your cases.

p> From the initial contact to our final catch up and everything in between, everything is logged on our secure digital system.

This gives you peace of mind that all your data will be handled securly, if anything happens to your assigned representative and they are unable to continue to represent you, another representative can pick up exactly where the other left off.

Our digital system removes the need for you to sign and return paperwork, you can upload files directly from your Email or by taking a photo on your phone, this means that we can get the information as fast as possible giving our Representatives more time to adequately assess your case and offer support.
