Women form the majority of UNISON members – in our branch 70%. UNISON structures like ‘proportionality’ attempt to make sure that the women are represented at all levels in the union, at least at a level that reflects their proportion of the membership. There are Women’s Committees and conferences at Scottish and UK level and provision for a women’s group in the branch. The branch also has a women’s officer post, see details here.
Women’s organisation addresses the discrimination women face and provides a forum and structures to promote issues that particularly affect women in the workplace and in society in general. Family care, low pay and domestic violence are just some examples of our campaigns. If you would like to become involved in a branch women’s group please contact the branch here
