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.   

Our members work in the NHS, in Local Government, in the Police and Justice Sector, in Universities, in the Community and Voluntary Sector and in the Water, Energy and Transport Sectors.   They’re in every conceivable occupation – nurses, cleaners, teaching assistants, social workers, administrators, meter readers, managers – the list is endless.   But they all have one thing in common and that’s a belief in and commitment to, the provision of quality public services for the communities they serve.   They’re also predominantly women.

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.   

Our priority is to build strong workplace organisation by listening to and engaging with members on the things that matter to them.   

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