Young Members

UNISON has almost 5,000 young members in the South East. 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 in the South East you are supported by a union of 102,000 members who can assist you with support, training, advice and guidance.

The South East Young Members’ Forum brings together young members from across a wide variety of employers in South East and takes a lead in organising, running and supporting young member campaigns across the region.

The Forum has also created a section of various resources that young workers may find helpful.

Young members make a difference in the workplace by campaigning on the issues that affect them directly, such as job security and training, apprenticeships, workplace rights, pay and conditions problems and bullying. As a young member you can take part in all UNISON campaigns.
