UNISON has announced it is to campaign for the UK to stay part of the European Union, and will be encouraging members to vote remain on 23 June.
The decision was taken on Wednesday 13 April at a meeting of UNISON’s governing NEC, and follows an extensive UK-wide consultation and survey across UNISON’s branches.
In the consultative survey, almost four in five (78%) of UNISON’s health, local government, education, energy and police branches wanted the union to take a stance in the EU referendum. Of these, the overwhelming majority (95%) wanted UNISON to campaign for the UK to stay in Europe.
