UNISON launches new migrant member network

UNISON is launching a dedicated network to support migrant members

For the first time, UNISON members are now able to self-identify as a migrant worker.

The UNISON migrant worker network is an informal network of UNISON members with a first-generation immigrant background including overseas and migrant workers, EU settled status workers and workers who have subsequently naturalised as British citizens or who have indefinite leave to remain.

A leaflet promoting UNISON’s migrant workers network, as well as our free immigration helpline for members and their families, is available to download here.

UNISON Migrant worker members can access expert migrant rights advice and support for themselves and their families via a UNISON funded partnership with the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI).

Members can access the advice service via UNISONdirect who can then arrange an appointment for the member with a JCWI advisor.
