Aberdeenshire UNISON

Equalities and self organisation

To make sure all our members have a voice in the union, UNISON members have set up 'self-organised groups' to provide a voice for people who are traditionally under represented.

UNISON has groups at national, regional and local level for women, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members, black members and disabled members. These groups are designed to be self-organising but also integral to the union's structures.

The branch has run a Pathways Course to support women to become more active in the branch and in UNISON as a whole. Click here for more information.

UNISON also has a young members and a retired members section to ensure that the interests of these particular groups of members also have a voice within the organisation. Les Chalmers, our Welfare Officer, is an elected member of the UNISON Scotland Retired Members' Committee.
