Unite and senior management at Glasgow’s Queens Cross Housing Association (QCHA) are pleased to announce the signing of a trade union recognition agreement.
The agreement will create formal recognition for the provision of three workplace representatives and one health and safety representative to support members within QCHA’s 230-strong workforce, serving 4,300 households in the North West of Glasgow.
The not-for-profit organisation’s services also include advocacy and support, skills development activities and project work for the local communities of the Dundasvale, Hamiltonhill, Queens Cross and Woodside neighbourhoods.
Unite regional officer Allan Cameron said: “This agreement is a progressive step forward and I would like to pay tribute to both the workers and management at QCHA who have recognised the valuable role trade unions play in the workplace.
“We look forward to a future at QCHA where everyone in the organisation benefits from the employment relations, equalities, lifelong-learning and occupational health and safety expertise that Unite can deliver.”
Queens Cross Housing Association chief executive Shona Stephen said: “We’re delighted to be formally recognising our partnership with Unite today.
“Our employees are the cornerstone of our organisation. This agreement will help us deliver our commitment to developing and supporting our workforce.”
