What are Campaign Fund Contributions?
Unison stands up for its members and speaks out publicly on the issues that effect them. To continue this work, Unison asks new members when they join for a voluntary 5% campaign contribution by Direct Debit.
The facility to pay into two funds are available:
Campaign Fund – the campaign fund promotes better public services, enables the union to talk with politicians of any party about the work our members do and supports the union’s equalities work.
Unison Labour Link – Labour Link campaigns for Unison policy on the NHS, your employment rights and for quality public services within the Labour Party locally and in Parliament.
Members do not have to make a contribution to a campaign fund. Those who choose not to opt in will not be disadvantaged in any way as compared with members who do opt in.
(in effect from 1 March 2018 under the Trade Union Act)
