Remember, as a UNISON member you are entitled to a range of great benefits and services.
You can earn more: Year on year, UNISON wins pay rises for its members. Pay negotiations are conducted nationally, but all union members are consulted on annual pay rises and as a Unison member, you will be consulted too.
You're more likely to get equal pay:UNISON is campaigning to bring women's pay into line with men's.
You get more and better training:UNISON provides courses to help you learn new skills, improve existing ones and develop your career. We will fight for time off for training and development for support staff.
If you do get injured at work, you'll get better compensation:UNISON wins millions in legal compensation for people who are injured or become ill at work. We won over £37 million in 2004 for members and their families.
You're less likely to be discriminated against:UNISON campaigns for tougher laws to make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of sex, race, age, disability or sexual orientation. Black and Asian trade unionists earn 32 per cent more than non-unionised colleagues.
You're less likely to be sacked:Trade union members are only half as likely to be sacked as non-members. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
You are safer at work: Health and safety is important to workers and it’s important to UNISON. Our members are safer and healthier in workplaces with active safety reps and where hazards are risk assessed.
