Branch Finance and the Organising Branch

Branch Finances and the Organising Branch


Initially in the North West we hope to attract Branch Secretaries and Branch Treasurers - to the course in May’16  – after this initial course we will offer more dates throughout the year


The course runs for two days and involves individual activities, group work and discussion as well as finding out information from your employer and outside sources. It is NOT designed to make the learner a ‘financial expert’ but to introduce them to some of the key issues facing individuals, the trade union and the employing organisation. In particular, the course aims to help the learner to:

  •  Understand branch finances

  •  Work with the branch to establish transparency in financial transactions

  •  Develop protocols for budget setting and procurement

  •  Develop a budgeting framework

  •  Understand the role of budgeting and organising within a framework of UNISON’s objectives

  •  To enable branch treasurers to promote an organising union through branch budgeting
