Campaigning in UNISON

UNISON is the UK’s largest union 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.

We are a campaigning and an organising union, promoting the cause of social justice and a better and fairer workplace both at home and abroad. We also have a responsibility to defend human and trade union rights wherever they are under attack.

Campaigning is a vital part of our work. It is one method we use to raise awareness of issues, fight for employment rights and gather support for local, national and international issues.

Campaigning can help persuade people to take a particular course of action or change their attitudes or opinions.

If you would like more information, please contact Marian Jervis, who represents the branch on the Regional Labour Link and is vice-chair, on 01472-236687.
