Women in UNISON

Women in unison

UNISON has almost one million women members – more than two thirds of our union. Women still earn a lot less than men and face sex discrimination and harassment at work. Our members also juggle work and home commitments. Many have caring responsibilities and almost half work part-time. This is why UNISON takes a lead on negotiating and campaigning on women’s rights at work and in the community.

Women must be able to participate fully in union activities and decision-making. We can only achieve our goal of promoting equality at work, in the community, in public services and in the union itself through active organisation to break down the barriers.

Regional organisation 

Eastern region also has a women’s group, which meets on a regular basis to develop policies to promote equality and encourage women’s participation at regional and branch level. The group organises training and other events open to all women in the region.
