Trade Union representatives


For local information contact

With over 1.3 million members Unison is one of the biggest unions in the UK we specialise in supporting and representing members within the public sector. 

As Further Education is a significant part of the public sector, we have a section of the union that specifically looks after the needs of members in our sector. We can do this because we understand the environment that we work in and the problems and opportunities that arise. 

Here at the University of St Andrews our team are well versed in representing our membership and are more than familiar with the universities structure.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet you and to discuss membership.
