Aberdeenshire UNISON

Women in UNISON

Women form the majority of UNISON members in Scotland. UNISON structures like 'proportionality' attempt to make sure that the women are represented at all levels in the union, at least at a level that reflects their proportion of the membership. If the membership is 65% women, then the leadership should be at least 65% women.

Women's organisation in UNISONScotland seeks to address the discrimination women face and provides a forum and structures to promote issues that particularly affect women in the workplace and in society in general. Family care, low pay and domestic violence are just some examples of the UNISON campaigns.
