As the only union set up by union workers, for union workers, we understand the complexities of working for a union organisation. We support our members individually and collectively with any issue at work. Whoever, wherever you work, if you are employed or volunteering for a UK union organisation – we want you! There’s a membership type for everyone.
New members join on a 1 year introductory rate of only £2/month for all membership types. After 12 months, your subscription amount will be adjusted to reflect the amount for your membership type.
Legal advice and support
We have relationships with leading law firms; Truth Legal, Blacks Solicitors and Landau Law. We also have a network of dedicated caseworkers, including retired Regional Officers.
As a listed union our members have the statutory right for an accredited UWU representative to accompany them at any formal workplace meeting. In addition to representation throughout the internal stages of your issue, subject to a merits assessment our panel of solicitors will review your case and seek the best resolution possible.
Equality and solidarity networks
Equal opportunities and safe spaces are at the heart of everything we do as a union. We have a growing network of women members and a new network of black officers. Join up and join in!
Trade union reps can join us too
Associate members can access our advice and training as well as exciting opportunities for networking. Associate members can support our campaigns as we build a strong union for workers in the United Kingdom.
