Your young members’ officer is there to work with other branch officers, and to act as an organiser, recruiting and encouraging participation by young workers.
They will also play a big part in setting up activities with the branch on issues relevant to young workers.
UNISON has around 63,000 young members. If you are a UNISON member and under 27 years of age, you are automatically entitled to participate as a young member.
Young members make a difference in the workplace by campaigning on the issues that affect them directly, such as, job security and training, apprenticeships, workplace rights, pay and conditions problems and bullying.
As a young member you can take part in all UNISON campaigns.
As a young member you also have the power to act against inequality or discrimination in the workplace and improve conditions for all.
