Retired Members

LAS UNISON believes that Members, when they retire, should still remain as an active part of the UNISON structure, and should continue to benefit from UNISON Membership.

LAS UNISON still values you as a RETIRED MEMBER, and as such you will still be able to access almost all the BENEFITS and SERVICES you enjoyed as a working member of UNISON.

INCLUDING:

  • UNISON WELFARE
  • LEGAL SERVICES
  • CROYDE BAY HOLIDAY VILLAGE
  • UNISON TRAVEL
  • INSURANCE
  • CONFIDENTIAL HELP AND ADVICE
  • CONVALESCENT FACILITIES

And many other services.

We want to develop a STRONG and ACTIVE Retirement Section, and as such we endeavour to be active in UNISON RETIRED MEMBERS BRANCH and District Committees, and to attend as many meetings as possible to enhance the high regard that LAS UNISON is held in.

I hope to report back to RETIRED MEMBERS on the results of any decisions or campaigns that affect , either detrimentally or positively, our MEMBERS quality of life.

If you have been a UNISON MEMBER for at least TWO years on the day you retire and have either achieved STATE PENSION AGE or you get a PENSION, then you can become a RETIRED MEMBER.

UNISON RETIRED MEMBERSHIP normally costs £15 per annum, but LAS UNISON Members pay nothing, as the fee is covered by the LONDON AMBULANCE SERVICE BRANCH.

LAS UNISON BRANCH also offer a RETIREMENT GRANT to all members of UNISON (or formerly of COHSE, NUPE or NALGO) who have been MEMBERS for at least 15 years, to help towards their RETIREMENT FUNCTION, up to a maximum of £350.  Contact your LOCAL REP for info.
