A better future for all

Derbyshire UNISON is the largest trade union branch in the region with over 10,000 members in local authorities, schools and colleges, charities, private companies and others providing public services. We organise to protect what workers have won in the past and for a better future for all.

If there are issues at your workplace, why not get in touch and see if we can help?


The government is turning back the clock to when those who could afford services paid for them and those who couldn’t went without. UNISON members repair and clean roads and walkways, staff libraries and leisure centres, allocate and repair social housing, maintain parks and other open spaces. 

​our services

Sadly, scammers are still active in Derbyshire during this crisis. A recent one claims to be about free school meals. You shouldn't respond to any text or email on this issue that clearly doesn't come from the county council.
