ABOUT US

UNISON is one of the UK’s largest trade unions, serving more than 1.3 million members. We represent full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors.

UNISON represents and acts for members working in a range of public services and utilities, whether they’re employed by private companies, public authorities or in the community and voluntary sector. We represent members, negotiate and bargain on their behalf, campaign for better working conditions and pay and for public services. And more besides.

WHY JOIN A TRADE UNION

In workplaces where there are unions, members benefit from the strength and security that comes from working together to tackle problems.

Employees at unionised workplaces earn around 12.5% more than non-unionised workplaces.

The major benefits are:

  • better working conditions such as improved health and safety or pay;
  • training for new skills to help you develop your career;
  • advice on your legal employment rights;
  • advice on finance and problems at work.

Trade unions may also represent their members’ interests outside the workplace. For example, trade unions may lobby the government or the European Union on policies which promote their objectives.
