Policy Finder


The Branch has over 700 members in around 200 separate employers in the Voluntary and Community Sector.

There is a Shop Stewards Committee for Voluntary and Community Sector members. These pages carry news from that committee from time to time.

The Voluntary and Community Sector is increasingly central to providing public services in Scotland. Although it does not have a UNISON Service Group, there is a Sector Committee at Scottish and UK level - follow the link to the UNISON Scotland pages - and at UK level, recognising the important role of members who work for projects that have Local Government and Health Service links.

UNISON is the largest union in the community and voluntary sector with more than 30,000 members working in every type of job across all grades. Our members work in non-profit organisations ranging from large national charities with hundreds of employees to small-grant aided projects employing one part-timer.

They provide a range of services to local communities and campaign on all sorts of issues. UNISON works to create partnerships between the union and employers through which everyone co-operates to improve terms and conditions and strengthen the organisation. Our priorities include ending low pay, tackling stress and violence in the workplace and working to make sure all staff get proper training opportunities

Please tell the Branch office if there are any changes in address, phone number or if you change job.
