Essential cover wherever you work


UNISON has more than 1.3 million members working to deliver public services across the UK, including members in private companies and voluntary organisations.

Every one of our members has their own reason for joining the union, but they all receive all the benefits, help and support we can offer.

The union is here for its members, whether it’s a problem at work, help with family problems, legal advice or careers and learning.

UNISON members have the strength, knowledge and commitment of their UNISON colleagues around them.  We provide advice, support and assistance in the workplace.

Our teams of advisers, legal experts, trained representatives and experienced negotiators will provide you with help at work when you need it most.

But our support doesn’t just end when members leave the workplace.  UNISON is there for members and their families outside work too.

As well as providing essential cover for everyday life, UNISON speaks out for public services and the people who provide them. We speak to politicians and employers about the best way to protect the most vulnerable in our society and campaign for change on behalf of our members and their families.

For as little as £1.30 a month (depending on salary) you get a range of services including:

  • advice, support and help when you need it at work;
  • a helpline that is open until midnight (on weekdays, 4pm Saturday);
  • legal help for you at work and you and your family at home;
  • financial assistance and debt advice in times of need;
  • compensation for accidents and injuries at work;
  • a range of exclusive member discounts that can save you and your family money when you are shopping, buying insurance or looking for a holiday;
  • access to training and education courses;
  • a members magazine sent to your home address four times a year;
  • discounts for members and their families at Croyde Bay, the union’s holiday resort on the north Devon coast.
