Welcome to The Open University UNISON website
Whatever you’re going through – we can help. We’re the UK’s largest union, with over 1.4 million members. Join now and you’ll receive our support – with membership costing less than you might think.
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.
There are also special member benefits such as discounts and special offers on such things as Insurance, Holidays, Legal Advice.

Join Now and make sure we’re always with you, whenever and wherever you need us.
