UNISON is the largest public service union, with more than 1.3 million members. We work in partnership with the Open University and UCU in negotiating Terms and Conditions, Agreements and Codes of Practice. We can help our members with issues related to Employment Terms and Conditions, Leave Entitlement, Health and Safety, Bullying and Harassment and lots more besides.

There are also special member benefits such as discounts and special offers on such things as Insurance, Holidays, Legal Advice and so on.

Members of UNISON at the Open University mainly work directly for the University, but the branch also supports members working for private contractors providing 'on campus' support services to the University.
