Who we are

UNISON is Britain and Europe's biggest public sector union with more than 1.3 million members. Our members are people working in the public services, for private contractors providing public services and in the essential utilities. They include frontline staff and managers working full or part time in local authorities, the NHS, the police service, colleges and schools, the electricity, gas and water industries, transport and the voluntary sector. Last year UNISON recruited 137,000 new members - 375 per day.

We have a strong UNISON Executive Committee at the University of York, working in partnership with the University for the benefit of all our members. You will find more information on individual members of the Committee if you open the Get In Touch page.
We represent a cross section of staff across the majority of all departments including Campus Services, Estates, Finance, Administration, Portering, Facilities Management, IT Services, Information, Nursery staff and Catering.  Please email us at unison@york.ac.uk for details of your nearest Steward or Workplace Rep.
