UNISON is the biggest union in Cymru/Wales, with more than 100,000 members across the region.

Our members are people working in public services or for private contractors providing public services and essential utilities.

They include frontline staff and managers working full- or part-time in local authorities, the NHS, colleges and schools, universities, the electricity, gas and water industries, police services, transport and in the voluntary sector.

Members are organised into 61 branches across the country.

As well as defending public services and fighting the government’s cuts to public services, our priorities are campaigning for a living wage and regional weighting.
