Together in UNISON

UNISON is the largest trade union nationally. Founded in 1993 from the merger of the three public service unions, NUPE, NALGO & COHSE, it has a tradition as being the Union to join for public service employees.

The best way to make UNISON strong and effective in your workplace is to make sure your colleagues are in it too. We can make our views known and by sheer strength of numbers ensure action is taken to safeguard each other's jobs and pay.
