- Retired members shall be entitled to attend branch meetings and to vote on issues not relating to the pay and conditions of members in employment. They will be entitled to stand for office and vote only for positions in the Retired Members’ Organisation unless otherwise determined by the National Executive Council or as otherwise provided for in these Rules.
- Members dismissed or made redundant from employment within the meaning of C.1 (see UNISON Rulebook) who notify the branch secretary in writing within six months of loss of their employment may acquire unemployed membership for two years from the date of dismissal or redundancy. This entitles them to receive benefits from the Union for up to two years after that date, provided they remain unemployed.
- Unemployed members shall be entitled to attend branch meetings and to vote on issues not relating to pay and conditions of members in employment. They are not entitled to hold office in the union unless otherwise decided by the National Executive Council.
