Public affairs

UNISON and Parliament

UNISON works closely with sympathetic Members of Parliament and particularly closely with Labour MPs. MPs can put down early day motions and ask questions related to UNISON concerns and lobbies, such as those concerning public services, housing and trade union rights.

UNISON and the European Parliament

As well as working at a UK level, Labour Link works closely with the UNISON group of Labour MEPs in the European Parliament. Together we liaise on European legislation.

Through this work, we have achieved major improvements in areas such as employment rights, equality issues and environmental safeguards.
