When a group of workers act and speak together, their employer has to listen. That’s how unions make things better at work.

Unions can negotiate better pay for their members, help to make workplaces safer and ensure that you get the best deal at work. Whether you want advice on your rights at work, training opportunities, or think you’ve been treated unfairly, your union is there to support you to get the right outcome.

Why join a union

More than six million workers in the UK are in a union – from nurses to pilots, actors to lorry drivers. Find the right union for you, today.

Joining a union is affordable and easy, and the benefits are huge. Unions help workers come together, demand a better deal from their employers, and raise standards for all of us.

Unions are the reason we all enjoy paid holiday, maternity leave, and lunch breaks. They’ll offer you free legal advice if you need it, training and learning opportunities, and even discounts and offers.
