UNISON’s rules govern the way the union runs and how various parts of the union, including branches, regions, service groups and membership groups, work.
They also outline the rights and responsibilities of members.
The rules are kept under constant review and can be changed if agreed by a two-thirds majority of delegates at each national delegate conference.
The rules are published in the UNISON rulebook. A new edition is produced after every national delegate conference, which incorporates the latest updates and rule changes.
Every member is entitled to a copy of the latest edition of the UNISON rulebook. This can be downloaded online or hard copies can be ordered by contacting the union’s member liaison unit by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone 020 7121 5131.
