Calling all UNISON school support staff members

Calling all UNISON school support staff members

Welcome to the thousands of new school support staff members that have joined UNISON over the last few weeks. It’s great to have you on board – and we look forward to you getting involved to build safer and stronger workplaces.

As schools remain shut to all but vulnerable and key worker children, you continue to go above and beyond during the pandemic to support our pupils whether they are learning at school or at home.

Check out our latest Schools Support Staff Newsletter for an update on UNISON’s school advice and a number of important meetings which we hope you will attend and share with colleagues.


In the face of COVID, we need to work together to build safer and stronger workplaces. Here’s a few ways you can help:

  1. Complete our new schools support staff survey to tell us about the issues that matter most to you. Please share with your colleagues and encourage them to complete it too.
  2. Join our new UNISON North West Schools Support Staff Facebook Group to stay in touch and build organisation across the whole region. Why not invite your Facebook friends that work in schools too?
  3. Attend one of our ‘Keeping Our Schools Safe’ online meetings on 26th January, 6 – 7pm, or 30th January, 10:30 – 11:30am – more information about these meetings can be found in our newsletter.

Some local branches are also organising their own schools meetings. Please contact them directly for further info.

  1. Why not get involved with UNISON as a workplace contact or steward? See the newsletter for more information, or email for further info.
  2. Share the newsletter with colleagues and ask them to join UNISON.
