What we do
At Sefton UNISON we represent our local members, full-time and part-time staff who provide public services. UNISON is the public service union with experience across many sectors. From those directly employed within the public sector to those working for private contractors supporting public services or utility companies. Within the Sefton Area we provide collective representation to negotiate on our members behalf as well as campaigning for better working conditions and pay for public services.
With more than 1.3 million members, UNISON is one of the UK’s largest trade unions and Europe’s largest public service union. We campaign for you. We campaign for them. We campaign for all without a voice through the collective strength of our membership.
Sefton UNISON have over 4,000 local members, working in a variety of roles within schools, colleges & academies, Sefton Council, care sector, charities and privatised Public Sector Support Services. Sefton UNISON is a Campaigning Union and supports local, regional, national and international campaigns promoting social justice & rights for all workers.
Our branch is run by a group of committed & dedicated individuals with years of experience across the range of organisations where our Members are found. The team all passionately believe in the role of public services, the ethos of Unions and care deeply about the conditions of workers within the public sector & allied private sector.
We are UNISON | Why be part of something special
Council & School Pay 2023
From street cleaners to social workers, teaching assistants to care assistants, Local Government workers go above & beyond every day. Serving their communities, so often doing the hardest jobs and dealing with the issues that society prefers not to see. They do this selflessly but frequently with little recognition.
It’s time to demand decent pay for the work that you do.
That’s why we’re asking members in councils & schools to vote YES in our strike ballot.
Collective Action. Collective Responsibility. Collective Support
