Why Join Unite the Union?

  1. You can get a better deal – Unite negotiates terms of maternity or paternity leave, pensions, and redundancy winning you more than the legal minimum.
  2. You are less likely to be injured – there are 50 percent fewer accidents in unionised workplaces. Unite works to ensure employers protect employees from risks to their health and safety.
  3. Support whenever you need it – Without the backing of a union you could face £1,200 in fees should you need to take your employer to a tribunal. Unite gives free advice, support and legal representation to all its members so they never have to face problems alone.
  4. In or out of work, there is a place for you – Unite Community offers a place for all those out of work, studying or retired - meaning that you are always part of something bigger.
  5. You get more - and better - training – union members are more likely to get on with better training and development. Unite has fully trained learning reps to help you update your skills.
  6. You can get better compensation – in 2013, a record £330 million was won for union members and their families through legal help, and £1 million in equal pay claims - an average of £15,000 per member.
  7. Better job security – trade union members are more likely to stay in their jobs longer - on average, five years more than non-members.
  8. Being part of the fight for fairness - from defending our NHS to fighting for decent homes to campaigning against discrimination.
