Unions in 2023… you can’t miss us!

Real-terms pay cuts, poor conditions and spiralling workloads can feel overwhelming, especially in a cost of living crisis. But you’re never alone in a union.

Ordinary working people from every corner of the country are making headlines for standing up, in their unions, to defend their livelihoods and the services they provide.

Heart Unions Week is about loudly and proudly showing that our voices are stronger in UNISON. Together we’ll defend and progress our rights at work and fight for the pay we deserve. 

Here’s how to get out there and spread the love.
