Events & Campaigns

This page is links to national and local campaigns as well as an Events calendar.

Campaigning is a vital part of our work. It is one method we use to raise awareness of issues, fight for employment rights and gather support for local, national and international issues.

Campaigning can help persuade people to take a particular course of action or change their attitudes or opinions.

The aim of UNISON campaigns is to improve working lives and defend working rights.

We often achieve these improvements by putting pressure on employers and government. We also often gather support from key decision makers.
