We are a branch of the UNISON trade union. We have nearly 2,000 members employed by Southend Council, South Essex Homes, South Essex College, schools and many other public and private sector employers.

We are a democratic organisation run by our members, who elect officers and stewards to represent them. We have a Branch Executive Committee which meets every month. We send delegates to the Eastern Region of UNISON, and national conferences.

We all need support and representation at work. Trade unions are independent organisations which are our voice in the workplace and our communities. We need you to join us, so that you can get the support you need and so that we can be stronger and louder when we speak up all our members.
