About Us

UNISON is Northumberland’s biggest and liveliest public sector trade union with 5,000 members across the county. Our members are people working in the public services or for private contractors providing public services and the essential utilities.

They include frontline staff and managers working full or part time in local authorities, colleges and schools, probation, community and the voluntary sector. Our branch is run by a committed group of individuals who believe passionately in public services and the public sector ethos.

We represent members over one of the largest geographic spreads in the UK. Our members do a variety of jobs ranging across administrative, catering, social care, cleaning, caretaking, security, secretarial and teaching support to name but a few. On behalf of our members we negotiate for pay and conditions, help individuals in trouble and campaign for a safer, fairer society.

We hope our new website will be a useful tool to you and keep you abreast of how negotiations are progressing with your employer as well as keeping you up to date with UNISON news.

This Branch also makes use of a dedicated UNISON shop which is situated at 94 Station Road, Ashington, NE63 8RS and is one of a number of shop-style Branch Offices across the UK which help make UNISON more visible in the community.

The shop is used as a resource centre with meeting and training facilities for members as well as a drop in facility for members seeking advice or guidance on employment issues. It is a great asset and a place where UNISON members can join up, get advice and support, and report problems.
