People often say to us but what are UNISON Scotland doing for us . Well below is just some of the things we do ......

Every year as part of the council's budget process we put forward budgets suggestion aimed at saving jobs.

We have successfully worked with the council to maintain the no compulsory redundancy policy and protect terms and conditions.

Just last month we were successful in getting tribunal fees scrapped so that workers can enforce their rights easier.

We have and are committed to fighting the public sector pay cap.

We support our members in their time of need. Whether this be work place stress, bullying or any workplace issue.

We offer a range of discounts and free services to our members . Such as free will writing service or discounts off a new car.

We also make sure that our members voices are heard whether this be by managers or elected members.
