UNISON Against Discrimination
We are keen to tackle any kind of discrimination. As such we keen to develop self organizing groups. Currently our branch currently has self organised Black members groups up and running.
If you identify with this group we would love to hear from you.
For Black members, please contact our Equalities officer, Frances Fenton by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Two-thirds of UNISON members are women. Important issues for the women’s group include equal rights, health, flexible working and childcare.
Disabled members benefit from a range of national and regional events such as information, discussion and policy-making meetings, as well as training and social events.
UNISON’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members get support and advice regarding discrimination and equality in the workplace.
Young members (26 years old or younger)
Join our 60,000+ young members who get involved in campaigns to make a positive difference to pay, working conditions and rights.
As a retired member you can benefit from regular meetings and social outings, as well as the option to join UNISON campaigns.
Please complete the contact form on the menu bar if you’d like to know more.
UNISON members who share common concerns get together in self-organised groups to discuss, campaign and organise events around the specific issues that affect them.
Member groups work for change in many different ways:
- by raising awareness of topical issues that affect members;
- by campaigning to change legislation;
- by using the bargaining power of their collective voice.
Being a member of UNISON means you get the support and collective bargaining power of 1.3 million other members.
When members gather together and act as one they can often achieve greater good than individuals working alone.
