Everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. The ability to live and work without prejudice is a fundamental right.One of UNISON’s main aims is to help workers fight for fairness and equality in the workplace and beyond. Challenging discrimination and winning equality is at the heart of everything UNISON does.

Besides the right not to be discriminated against or bullied, fair treatment also includes equal working conditions and pay.

Self-organised groups

Self-organised groups (SOGs) operate at all levels of the union. If you’re in one or more of the SOGs, this can be a great way to get involved in UNISON and start making a difference in your workplace.

In the region we have committees for each SOG that are elected annually from its membership.

UNISON members in the South West set the priorities for the campaigns and education work of our regional self-organised groups, as well as making sure we are living up to our values as a union.
