You are invited to be a founding member of the East Midlands Branch of Equity.
Equity opened a branch for members living, working and visiting the East Midlands. It's purpose is to look out for our professional interests and be a collective presence for action to campaign and champion cause that matter to members in the region.
What is this new branch?
The new Equity branch in the East Midlands is an important development for the union and its members in the region. It provides local representation and support for members. It is a regular meeting place to access branch officers and regional representatives who can assist members with issues such as contracts, health and safety, and employment rights. The branch also provides opportunities for members to network and engage with their peers, enabling them to share knowledge, opportunities and experiences, as well as stay informed about industry developments.
This is a brand new branch, in the first 2 meetings, one in February and one in March 2023 a committee formed. 40 members attended either at the venue or via Zoom video. Between April and November before the branches first AGM and committee election the interim committee will be working with the regional organiser Ian Bayes to grow the attendance numbers from out 1300 strong membership and build relationships with local employers within the sectors predominate among the members attending.
Every East Midland Equity member is starting as a new member of this branch. If you are a seasoned professional or just out of training with a shiny new Equity membership card - everyone is welcome.
