About Us

Who are we?

Our UNISON branch represents professional staff at the University of Birmingham, including both support staff and academic related staff, either directly employed by the University or by private contractors. We negotiate for better pay and conditions collectively - for all our support staff, UNISON members or not - we help individuals in trouble and campaign for a fairer, better society - we put jobs and education before profit.

You can read more about our current campaigns on our homepage. To become a member, please complete the application form, which can be found on our joining page.

Who are UNISON?

UNISON is one of the UK's largest trade unions, serving more than 1.3 million members. We represent full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors.

UNISON represents and acts for members working in a range of public services and utilities, whether they're employed by private companies, public authorities or in the community and voluntary sector. We represent members, negotiate and bargain on their behalf, campaign for better working conditions and pay and for public services, and more besides.
