We were then and now remain a specialist Union for our specialist workforce – we are the leading subject experts on Borders. We have always been staunchly independent. We have no political affiliation. The ISU have never and will never run a political fund to bankroll a political party or agenda. But we do speak our minds to reflect the reality our members experience, so often distorted in coverage elsewhere. As we have always been, we are here only to serve the interests of our people.
Over 40 years since we formed, the ISU have continued to grow and today are stronger than ever. We are one of the real success stories in Trade Unionism and long may that continue!
The ISU is governed by the ISU General Secretary, Chairman and Vice Chairman. There are currently 13 members on our National Elective Committee. We have a finance officer, a dedicated pay query team and staff who work at HQ (pictured left). We also currently have 5 trustees and a life president.
