About Us

Welcome to UNISON East Midlands – an 80,000+ strong member organisation representing workers across a range of public services in the East Midlands.   

From hospitals to town halls, schools to street cleaners, libraries to police stations, we are the people who keep Britain going twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

We are for everyone who wants fair, healthy and productive workplaces and our members strive to build a better society in this image. Through our campaigns, we ensure that the issues that matter to our members are heard – such as decent jobs, pay, conditions, pensions, and safety – to build a better life for working people and their families in the East Midlands.

If you share their belief and commitment and you want to help us defend and protect public services and the interests of those who provide them, then come and join us and get your voice heard.   

Together we are stronger and we can exert more power and influence on the things that matter most to members.

Education, skills and training

UNISON is committed to whole-life education. We partner with adult learning organisations as well as training our own tutors, so public servants can develop skills for work and life. Employers value our contribution and we make sure workers have access to learning in return.
