What are Self Organised Groups

UNISON Self Organsed GroupsUNISON members who share common concerns get together in self-organised groups to discuss, campaign and organise events around the specific issues that affect them.

Member groups work for change in many different ways:

  • by raising awareness of topical issues that affect members;

  • by campaigning to change legislation;

  • by using the bargaining power of their collective voice.

Being a member of UNISON means you get the support and collective bargaining power of 1.3 million other members. When members gather together and act as one they can often achieve greater good than individuals working alone.

Disabled Members

UNISON's priorities on disability are led by the union's own disabled members. We help disabled members by fighting discrimination and campaigning and organising at workplace, regional and national levels.  

Women

UNISON women campaign in a self-organised group for equality in the workplace and for improvements to women's rights in the workplace and in the wider community.

Black Members

Black members in UNISON play a key role in winning equality in the workplace,
actively challenge racism wherever it is found, and are at the forefront of UNISON's organising work. As black members in UNISON we work together to win positive change in the workplace. The more of us that are actively involved the stronger we become.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members

UNISON fights discrimination and prejudice in the workplace on behalf of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members. We work together in local and national groups of LGBT members to campaign and provide support for our members.
