Before you start

Applying to join UNISON should take you no more than 10 minutes.

You will need to have the following information to hand to set up a direct debit:

  • Bank sort code
  • Bank account number
  • Full name account held in

If you are not the main account holder, or if you hold a joint account requiring two signatures, you will need to print off the application to sign and return at the end of the process. Further instructions on how to do this are included once you have completed the forms.

Please note that any fields marked with a * are mandatory.
It will be useful to also have your payslip handy.
We will also ask for information that helps us ensure the integrity of your membership record.

Dual membership:

If you are applying for dual membership of UNISON as part of our agreements with BAOT, MiP or NUJ then please apply directly to the partner union.
