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'
