Our electricity industry members range from clerical and administrative staff through to senior managers. Many work in call centres and in billing and data processing, facilities and human resources, among others.
Since privatisation, UNISON’s support for people working in the electricity industry covers members working for a variety of companies, many of which have moved into new areas such as water and telecommunications.
As the biggest union in the utilities, we work to raise employment standards and promote best practice in partnership with employers. We also campaign for a more sustainable future with affordable energy for all sections of society.
In the South East Region members are represented regionally by the Business and Environment Committee which organises an annual programme of regular meeting, training, campaigns, seminars and communications.
