UNISON Young members

Are you under 27? UNISON has a wide range of opportunities especially for young members.

UNISON wants young members to play a full part in union activities.

At the same time we know for many young people it can be difficult getting time off work for union activity, being taken seriously, or speaking out with confidence in a room full of older people who can give the impression they know it all.


That's why there is a young members' organisation in UNISON which is designed to: 

  • encourage recruitment and participation by young members
  • provide a voice for young members
  • give young members the chance to develop their skills and knowledge
  • support young members in becoming active in the wider union.

If you're already a member - of if you're thinking of joining - and wondering what your membership of UNISON can offer you, contact the Branch Office for more information. 

Keep an eye on this site/page for information about forthcoming Young Member events - there are several through the year.
