Branches are the basic unit of UNISON, every member belongs to one. They are made up of groups of members working for the same employer or several employers in the same area.
Have you thought about going along to a branch event to meet other UNISON members and find out what the branch is doing? You’ll be made very welcome and it’s a great chance to find out more about what the union is doing for you.
Within each branch there are members with established democratically elected positions, as well as many members who help out in an informal way.
We’ve spoken to some of these officials to find out what they do and why more people should get involved.
