Local Service Champions

A huge network of people work together to keep our local communities going. Yet very few of us probably recognise the vital local services that we come into contact with everyday. It’s time to give our local service champions the recognition they deserve.

Bridge The Gap

In the UK, on average, men earn 18% more than women. This is our gender pay gap. Find out how it happens and what UNISON is doing to bridge it.

Stop the HCPC fees hike

UNISON is campaigning to stop the HCPC hiking fees for health staff by an inflation-busting 18%.

CHANGE Universal Credit

Thousands of UNISON members are being hit by universal credit chaos. Stories of lives devastated, people left penniless and families driven to foodbanks. We are determined to make decision makers listen. And it is your personal experience that will spur them to do something.

Let’s fix probation

UNISON has launched a major campaign to oppose the government’s proposals for the future of probation and to call for the service to be reunified as a locally run and locally accountable public service.

EU citizens and Brexit

Since the 2016 EU referendum, we have been campaigning to protect the rights of EU citizens living and working in the UK.

Brexit and Public Services

The UK is due to leave the EU in March 2019.

Proud of who we are

UNISON came into being 25 years ago. In the face of hostile trade union legislation, and attempts to decimate and privatise our public services, we have grown and become strong. Of our 1.3 million members around 80% are women making us the biggest organisation representing women in the UK. That alone is cause for celebration. […]

Public Service Champions: Moments of Truth

The personal, frank stories behind 10 years of austerity. Public services have reached breaking point and so have the people that deliver them. They are speaking out to expose the truth.

Stand up for social work

Austerity has hit social services hard. Instead of putting the services children and families need in place, the government’s response has been to recommend unnecessary tests. We have an important opportunity to stop them but we need to take action now.

Mental health matters

As the largest union in the NHS we believe there should be proper investment and support for vital mental health services for all NHS workers.

One team for patient care

UNISON is campaigning to ensure everyone who works in our NHS is valued, whatever role they fill.
