UNISON - the public service union

 

UNISON Suffolk County Branch has relocated

The UNISON Office has now relocated to Suffolk County Council headquarters in Endeavour House Ipswich, on Russell Road. We are open for business to members. If you need to drop by please come to reception in Endeavour House and ask for the UNISON office, we look forward to seeing you.

 

 

UNISON represents full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors. We are the UK's largest public service union, with over 1.3 million members. If you need help now and you're a current member please contact us.

MEET OUR NEWEST MEMBER OF THE TEAM

I am very excited to join the branch as a BSOF Local Education Organiser. The team here is incredibly knowledgeable, motivated and I am looking forward to collaborating with them. I come from a family of educators, so I know how vital our members' jobs are in preparing the next generation. Enabling them to focus on their job to the best of their ability by having their back is incredibly important to me.

Looking forward to meeting you

Liam Hall
