The United Nations Staff Union (UNSU) is the labour union representing New York Secretariat staff, locally recruited staff in the field, and staff members of UN Information Centers. All staff members are automatic members. The Union’s duties and operations are defined in the Statute and Regulations of the United Nations Staff Union (adopted by referendum on 14 December 2007).
