The United Nations Field Staff Union (UNFSU) defends the rights and supports the welfare and well-being of Internationally recruited United Nations staff, who are assigned to and work in UN Field Entities.
These entities include the UN Peacekeeping operations, Special Political Missions, UNDSS staff in Field Entities, international staff of the UN Resident Coordinators offices and any other UN Field Entities.
Internationally recruited staff in these Field Operations are automatically members of the UNFSU, unless otherwise desirous.
The UNFSU encourages all its members to become voluntary financial contributing members, to help facilitate a strong financial base that allows the union to discharge its functions purposefully and independently from the UN organization.
Under the theme “Stronger Together”, the UNFSU aims to offer information, assistance and strategies to assist colleagues to resolve issues in a collaborative manner. Working as a team we are better placed to protect staff rights and have a positive effect on policies, welfare, safety and security.
We strongly believe in "One Staff, One Voice and One UN".
The Constitution and Rules provide for the discharge of functions entrusted to the elected representatives and bodies of the United Nations Field Staff Union, (UNFSU).
