Retired members

This section is for retired members. Our retired members’ group works closely with other member groups on almost every issue that affects workers in the UK, as well as fighting for quality public services, on which many older people rely.

UNISON retired members have a wealth of experience and knowledge that make them a valuable part of UNISON campaigns.
