PLEASE NOTE THAT DURING THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS THE FOLLOWING NUMBER SHOULD BE USED FOR LEGAL ENQUIRIES – 0808 252 2783
In light of the current situation UNISONdirect will be unable to process calls for members wishing to use the union’s Legal Assistance scheme. The union has been working Thompsons to find the best solution to ensure our members can continue to get the legal support they need in relation to non-employment law assistance. Issues related to work and employment law assistance should in the first instance, as usual , continue to be directed to branches.
For other legal queries, such as :
- seeking personal injury advice following a work or non-work accident/injury suffered by members,
- or a non-work related accident suffered by their families;
- if our members want criminal law advice or to access our initial free legal advice scheme;
- or if they want legal help with wills and conveyancing
Members should use the new dedicated UNISON number 0808 252 2783. When members call they need to have their UNISON membership number to hand. If you do not have this to hand please call the Branch Office to obtain it.
The simplest way for UNISON members to access legal support is to phone UNISONdirect on 0800 0857 857
or textphone on 0800 0967 968.
If the matter is Criminal law and an emergency outside of office hours please call 0800 587 7530.
For a free Will please complete the relevant parts of the attached form and send it to the Branch Office.
