Who are we?

UNISON is Britain and Europe’s biggest public sector union with more than 1.3 million members.

Who are we? 

Every member of UNISON belongs to a local branch which is made up of people working for the same employer ­ or sometimes working for the company which is used by the main employer……People like you…your local branch is NPT UNISON.

Your branch brings you together with other employees who face common issues in the workplace. Branches enable you to get support from the union, work with your colleagues and make your views felt in UNISON.

Each branch is run by a committee which consists of members elected to take on different roles.

Branch Life…

It’s people like your local UNISON equal pay rep and branch treasurer who build the union and work to win everyone a better deal. Workplace stewards and health and safety representatives are the core of the branch. Without them there would be no union to support you at work and negotiate for a better deal.

Branches hold regular meetings, including an annual general meeting this is when members are elected to the branch committee and other UNISON groups.

Your branch produces newsletters and runs this website as well as social media pages to keep the members informed.
