Roaring recognition

Another month, another recognition agreement. We are delighted to announce we have an agreement in principle with the newly formed Criminal Justice Workers Union. We look forward to a long a productive relationship over the years ahead.  

Winning on casework

We’ve been picking up increasing amounts of casework in recent months. With the support of our external legal partners Blacks and Landau Law, in addition to various local cases we are currently running 2 tribunal cases – more on this soon.

Stopping workplace racism

Ending institutional racism is central to the work of the UWU. We have recently made a substantial grant application to assist with our campaign to stamp out racism in our members’ workplaces. Our bid is ambitious but so is our campaign – fingers crossed. 

Can you help?

As we grow, so does our workload. Like every organising union we depend on the time and talent of our members to keep delivering for members. If you have any time or talent please get in touch about the many and varied ways to support the union. 

Last call for member survey!

In July we launched the UWU’s first all member consultation. This is members’ chance to influence the future development of the union. The survey closes Friday 25th September. Members should check their emails for the survey link.
