FIRST QUESTION IS WHERE CAN YOU FIND US?
The office is based at Lancashire Police HQ Hutton and can be found on Hutton Hall Avenue.
Currently the branch has two full time officers and a PA. The full time positions are held by the Branch Secretary and Assistant Branch Secretary. The PA is a post that is provided by the force to assist with the running of the department.
There are a number of Branch Officer posts that are also within the Branch structure and these people also play a vital role within the Branch, supporting the full time officers.
Local stewards are there as your first point of contact and will help you find the answers and solutions to any concerns you may have. They are volunteers and play a vital role in recruiting new members and assisting the full time officers. If you have a problem, talk to your local steward. If they cannot resolve the problem themselves they will talk to the full time officers on your behalf.
We are all going through challenging times within the force at the moment and this branch is there with you every step of the way. We endeavour to keep you informed on the latest news and what is going on in the force.
Within our site, you will be able to access a wide variety of information, including how to join us, upcoming events, UNISON plus benefits, lots of documents and forms and information on how to contact us.
We hope you will find our website informative and hope that you visit regularly so you keep up to date with current issues.
We continue to strive to provide the best possible service for you, our members. All the times we are looking for ‘Best Practice’ and innovations to continually improve but at the end of the day you are the most important part of all that we do – without you there would be no Branch.

All our stewards are ERA (Employment Relations Act) accredited during their time as a steward to ensure a high quality of representation for our members.
