Young Members

Young workers need UNISON. UNISON needs young members.


If you are a member of UNISON and under the age of 27, you are considered a “Young Member” within the union.

For most of us being a young worker is a fantastic experience – a satisfying job, learning new skills, making money and new friends. Sadly, for many young people it just isn’t like that. Low pay, dangerous jobs, harassment, and bullying can make working a nightmare.

  • organises to win improved working conditions and pay
  • campaigns for better rights, and
  • Actively challenges harassment, bullying and inequality.

There are many opportunities for young people within UNISON at a branch, regional and national level. If you are under 27 and want to become active within UNISON, please contact the Branch Young Members Officer.
