Member learning update:
In line with government guidance, we have taken the decision to suspend all planned UNISON courses and member learning events in the South West Region until 31st August at the earliest. Our priority has to be the health and well-being of our members, activists and their colleagues and families, as well as our staff.
If you’d like any further information or have any questions about our regional courses please email us at:
In the meantime UNISON staff are working hard to make sure the union’s business continues and our service to you is maintained. Information is changing rapidly and we are committed to keeping you informed.
