Women Members

UNISON has almost one million women members – more than two thirds of our union.

Here at UNISON Devon County Branch, over 70% of our members are women.

Unfortunately, women still earn a lot less than men and face sex discrimination and harassment at work. Our women members also juggle work and home commitments. Many have caring responsibilities and almost half work part-time.

This is why UNISON takes a lead on negotiating and campaigning on women’s rights at work and in the community.
