UNISON encourages young members to get involved in every level of the organisation. Nationally there are 63,000 young members and at regional level there are over 4,900. To be a young member you simply need to be under the age of 27.
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.
A branch Young Member’s Officer is a great starting place for someone who wants to become more active within UNISON or is considering becoming a Steward or Workplace Contact.
The Northern Region Young Members Forum meets on a regular basis. Meetings are friendly and informal and attending will give you the opportunity to get more involved in shaping your union and making sure that as a young member you have your voice heard.
Within our branch structure we are under represented in this area and would welcome expressions of interest from Young Members who wish to become more active within UNISON
