Heartunions is a special week of activities throughout England and Wales to showcase the fantastic work unions do. It’s a chance for everyone to get involved, help tell their own stories and build our trade union movement.
It will celebrate the great work done by union reps and members in our workplaces and in society.
The aim of the week is to enable union members to tell positive stories about unions to the wider public and non-members in the workplace.
The Big Workplace Meeting - Thursday 9 Feb
The Big Workplace Meeting live event, broadcast to branch meetings at 12.30pm. Frances O’Grady answered questions about the role of unions in the modern workplace and highlight great stories from across our trade union movement.
Three things to think about when deciding which union to join
1. It’s always a good to join a union that’s already active where you work – ask your colleagues or look for clues like a union noticeboard
2. Some jobs (like firefighters) have unions that look after them specifically. Other jobs don’t – but they are looked after just as well by general unions, who have specialist sections.
3. There is strength in numbers. So why not see if your friends and colleagues at work want to join up to a union too, and all do it together.
