Young Members

UNISON has around 63,000 young members. If you are a UNISON member and under 27 years of age you are automatically entitled to participate as a young member.

Young members’ groups work to:

  • encourage recruitment, organisation and participation of young workers
  • provide a powerful voice for young members
  • give young members the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to participate in the union.

As a young member you are supported by a union of 1.3 million members who can assist you with support, training, advice and guidance.

UNISON encourages young members to get involved in every level of the organisation. At regional level young members get together to plan and organise campaigns and discuss ideas and experiences.
