UNISON is the largest trade union for staff in schools.

Our members include teaching assistants, nursery staff, administrators, secretaries, policy officers, technicians, cleaners, caretakers, school meals workers - in fact anyone working in schools or supporting education.

UNISON is campaigning to make sure the vital contribution these staff make to schools and education is recognised and rewarded by calling for:

Better pay and conditions
Improved career structures
Access to training and development
Fair treatment for term-time, part-time and temporary staff
High quality, well-resourced education services accountable to the local community


Members experiencing financial and emotional difficulties can contact our welfare charity, There for You (was UNISON Welfare), which provides a confidential advice and support service for members and their dependants.
