About Unision Union

Unison is the UK's biggest union, serving more than 1,3 million members.

We represent full-time and part-time staff who offer public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors.

Members from many different backgrounds

With more than 1.3 million members, Unison is one of the UK’s biggest trade unions and the largest public service credit union. Unison, the biggest developing main priority for 2019 will be to campaign for added financing across all public services and to fight the challenges posed by the reductions brought about by the Trade Union Act and the European Union exit negotiations.

We support the community

Unison's 1.3 million labour in local authorities, the NHS, police and fairness, varsities, colleges and schools, the electricity and gas industries, the water industry, the Environment Agency, transport and the community and voluntary sector. Unions employ around 1200 people throughout the UK and have more than 1,3 million members. But we count on volunteer activists for much of the support we provide without them Unison would not be able to function.

Unision Union Services

We provide Unison members with low-interest loans and a range of savings products.

Whether you’re not satisfied with our current banking arrangements, are struggling with exorbitant interest rates charged by payday loans and other loan or simply looking for an ethical option, credit unions may offer just the solution.

The benefits for Unison members

Unison has formed a network of credit unions in the UK where members and their families can both save and take at low-interest loans, in many cases, through payroll deductions. We know just how many members are using payday loans and other high-interest loan products- regularly caught in a trap of spiralling debt.

Safe and responsible lending

Unison promotes credit unions as monetary and ethical co-operatives that will serve members in a safe and responsible way and promote monetary well-being. As little as £1 may be all you need to open a savings account. This could be a sensible alternative if you can only afford to save a small amount weekly or every now and then. And your reward for saving will be that you review a dividend yearly-often in the region of 2-3% of the amount you have saved.
