Our History

Our workplace is diverse and so are our members. The ISU was founded as a means of giving a voice to a silent majority of workers from operational backgrounds who wanted strong, trustworthy and reliable trade union representation, but who did not want to have these services influenced by a political agenda, as was the case in the early 1980′s.

We have worked tirelessly over the decades that have passed, to promote, defend and publicize the needs of our members. As times have changed, we have embraced member’s needs and met the demands of change head-on. Examples of our achievements over the years include successful actions concerning pay, raising standards of safety amongst arrest teams and protection of preferred working patterns for staff.
