The Northern Ireland Public Service Alliance (NIPSA) is the largest trade union in Northern Ireland with over 46,000 members – the vast majority working in the public sector.  We are a Northern Ireland based trade union – therefore we are your LOCAL trade union.

If you work full-time, part-time, term-time, or are on a temporary contract you should join NIPSA – the benefits are the same.  As a NIPSA member you will enjoy a great range of services, including:

  • Personal Representation: Access to advice, information and personal representation. Whether you are experiencing difficulties at work in a grievance or disciplinary matter, feel overloaded, or believe you are being discriminated against, we are here to help you.
  • Collective Negotiation: NIPSA is viewed across the public sector as a formidable negotiator for improved pay and conditions. With the recent threat of regional pay on the Government’s agenda this is particularly important.
  • Job Security: NIPSA campaigns for permanent contracts, career progression, adequate staffing and resources.
  • Professional Support: NIPSA provides you with a forum to raise professional issues, voice your concerns and influence decisions that affect your job.  We have particular experience across all professional grades especially within the Nursing and Social Work field.
  • Health and Safety Protection: NIPSA promotes good health and safety practices in your workplace.  Within the NIPSA 730 Belfast Branch we also issue bulletins and provide reports to our members on how the Belfast Trust has performed on Health and Safety issues.
  • Legal Advice and Assistance: Free legal assistance – NIPSA members won around £750,000 in compensation last year alone.
