Get involved

UNISON needs you. Get involved and be part of the movement that gave the world weekends, the national minimum wage, workplace pensions, the right not to be sacked for being pregnant or sick and many more legal rights. Oh, and ended child labour.

Get involved with your local branch

Your local UNISON branch is your first point of call for getting more involved in the union. From helping occasionally by sticking up posters, to getting fully trained up and supporting your colleagues with problems at work, UNISON branches always need more people to get involved.
