We are a brand new, specialist union for union workers, union representatives and any worker linked to the UK Labour movement. We are totally independent and 100% focused on our members, 100% of the time.


We are a campaigning union. Campaigning vigorously for maintained pension rights, for inflation-proof pay rises, for gender equality, including the right to self identify and for an end to institutional racism.


We are democratic and listen to the concerns of all members. Every member is encouraged to be active in the UWU and your voice counts.

Not in competition

We don’t compete with any union. Most UWU members are members of more than one union and the UWU will work with any union to support and deliver for our members.

We are the UWU

We are focussed primarily on union workplaces without an independent union. However, membership is open to any union worker. Representatives can join for access to networking and training.
