UNISON is the biggest union in the East Midlands, with more than 100,000 members across the region.

Our members are people working in public services or for private contractors providing public services and essential utilities.

They include frontline staff and managers working full- or part-time in local authorities, the NHS, colleges and schools, universities, the electricity, gas and water industries, police services, transport and in the voluntary sector.

Members are organised into 77 branches across the region.

Our priority is to build strong workplace organisation that listens to and engages with members on the things that matter to them – whether that is job security, pensions or defending services from cuts or the threat of privatisation.
