UNISON is Scotland’s largest public sector trade union representing around 160,000 members delivering services in the public, community and private sector across Scotland.


What is a trade union?

A trade union is a group of working people who have joined together to achieve better pay and working conditions and a safer working environment.

Trade unions negotiate with employers on behalf of union members to agree wages, work rules, complaint procedures, rules governing hiring, firing and promotion of workers, benefits, workplace safety and other policies.

● a national minimum wage
● improved parental leave provisions
● equality legislation
● laws on reasonable working hours
● minimum holiday and sickness entitlements
● health and safety in the workplace

UNISON is the trade union for all public service workers even if they work for voluntary organisations or private companies; we believe in:
