Scottish Black Members Committee (SBMC) actively shares promotion of trade union activities within UNISON. We have two main objectives:
SBMC implements these two objectives via ongoing activity. all those who contribute to the implementation process are volunteers, who allocate a considerable amount of time and energies to tackling issues affecting black members in Scotland.
Like any organisation we thrive on support and fresh ideas of our new members. Why not join us now to support our cause?
The Scottish Disabled Members Committee (SDMC) is a self organised group consisting entirely of disabled members who campaign on behalf of our disabled members to ensure that disability issues are given a voice within UNISON.
For more information and advice on disabled issues and for access to details of support services, click the link above.
This will give clear advice on disability, the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, and issues around work.
The SDMC are represented on all of the various Scottish and national committees to ensure your voice is heard.
If you are a UNISON member and under 27 years of age you are automatically entitled to participate as a young member. Why not get involved and help us campaign for the issues affecting young workers.
The Scottish Young Members Committee is currently working on
the re-launch of their quarterly newsletter which will be available soon.
As part of our re-launch we have decided to try get our Young Members within Scotland involved. We run a variety of events and competitions.
Young member's can attend conferences and we actively encourage members to do so.
Women form the majority of UNISON members in Scotland. UNISON structures like ‘proportionality’ attempt to make sure that the women are represented at all levels in the union, at least at a level that reflects their proportion of the membership. If the membership is 65% women, then the leadership should be at least 65% women.
Women’s Organisation in UNISON Scotland
addresses the discrimination women face and provides a forum and structures to
promote issues that particularly affect women in the workplace and in society
Family care, low pay and domestic violence are just some examples of our campaigns.
