Welcome to the East Riding Local Government Branch of UNISON. We represent over 2,500 members with the majority of our members being employed by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council. In addition we have members in Further Education Colleges, Academies, Humberside Probation, Humberside Independent Care [HICA] and the Community and Voluntary Sector within the East Riding of Yorkshire.

UNISON is one of the UK's largest trade unions, serving more than 1.3 million members. We represents full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors. Our members work in local government, health care, colleges and schools, the police service and the voluntary sector as well as in transport, the electricity, gas and water industries.

Moments of Truth


Your public services are at breaking point. Hear from the people who provide them – and their personal, and often frank stories of the tremendous pressures they face.

Hear their voices. Share their stories. Take a stand for your public services.
