Self organised groups

Equality is at the heart of UNISON. We challenge discrimination and win equality in the workplace and beyond.


Everyone shares responsibility for equality in UNISON. But our equality work includes groups for members who experience particular types of prejudice and discrimination. These groups meet locally and nationally to discuss, campaign and organise around the specific issues that affect them. They help UNISON understand equality and meet our equality aims.

Within the Branch, we currently have an active Women's Group and a newly formed Black Members' Group.

However, if you are interested in setting up an LGBT, Disabled or Young Members network, we'd love to hear from you! Please do get in touch with the branch and we can provide advice and assistance in setting these groups up.
