Women form the majority of UNISON members in Birmingham.
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. If the membership is 65% women, then the leadership should be at least 65% women.
Women’s Organisation in UNISON 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.
Our women’s group meet once a month to plan activities and to support members with issues. Meetings are open to all women members and take place at the branch office. If you are passionate about women’s issues please join us.
