What are Self-Organised Groups?

UNISON makes sure everybody has a voice in the union. Our 'self-organised groups' include those who are traditionally under represented, while young and retired members also come together to work on key issues affecting them. See descriptions of our SOGS below

Disabled Members
UNISON's priorities on disability are led by the union's own disabled members. We help disabled members by fighting discrimination and campaigning and organising at workplace, regional and national levels.

Women
UNISON women campaign in a self-organised group for equality in the workplace and for improvements to women's rights in the workplace and in the wider community.

Black Members
Black members in UNISON play a key role in winning equality in the workplace,
actively challenge racism wherever it is found, and are at the forefront of UNISON's organising work. As black members in UNISON we work together to win positive change in the workplace. The more of us that are actively involved the stronger we become.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members
UNISON fights discrimination and prejudice in the workplace on behalf of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members. We work together in local and national groups of LGBT members to campaign and provide support for our members.
