The West Sussex County branch of UNISON is a branch of the largest public service trade union in the UK.
We have over 5,900 members who work within the county of West Sussex delivering public services. We also have 650 retired members, taking the total branch membership to over 6,500.
Most of our members work for West Sussex County Council, including support staff within local authority schools. However, we also have members working for over 100 other local employers. These include UNISON members working in academies, further education colleges, universities, home and social care providers, charities and voluntary groups, outsourcing giants like Capita, and many more.
We support individual members with help, advice and representation in the workplace. Where we are recognised by the employer, we also negotiate on all staff terms and conditions.
