In 2010 BAPO and UNISON entered into a Service Level Agreement contract whereby UNISON provides automatic membership and a range of additional services to BAPO members following a vote by the membership at the 2009 AGM. This allows BAPO members to have:

• full access to UNISON services - including legal assistance Unison
• advice and guidance on employment issues
• support and representation on professional conduct matters
• indemnity insurance  
• direct and indirect benefits of national negotiating, campaigning and lobbying
Other benefits for you and your family through Unison plus include:  
• preferential rates from Unison's affinity partners (e.g. cheaper car insurance)
• access to legal advice on personal issues (e.g. free will service)
• access to UNISON welfare support and financial assistance
• membership of the UNISON holiday club and discounts at the holiday centre in Devon  
UNISON has developed guidance to assist BAPO members to influence service reviews and give you an idea of the types of questions you could be raising with your managers where cuts or changes to services are proposed. More information can be found on the Unison website.
If you need UNISON advice or representation, call our UNISON Direct enquiry line on 0800 0857857. Opening times are 6am‐midnight Monday‐Friday and 9am‐4pm on Saturdays. Calls are at local rate.
