Who Can Join?


The Workers Union is an inclusive organisation that’s dedicated to improving the working conditions of its members. So, who can join? We warmly welcome applications from every sector of the British economy. Basically if you work, you can join.

What’s in it for me?

The world of work is changing fast. Globalisation, the rise of technology and policy-blunders by successive governments have condemned generations of workers to job insecurity and low wages. Everywhere you look, people are searching for ways to protect themselves from greedy bosses, poor regulation and unfair working practices.

The Workers Union is a 21st century organisation that understands these challenges. We have access to resources that can help you hit back against bullying, harassment and exploitation. And unlike other unions, we’re not stuck fighting battles from industrial disputes of the past.

So as you read this, ask yourself:

  • Do you want to join an active, forward thinking organisation that will always stand up for you and your rights?
  • Do you want immediate access to help and advice?
  • Are you looking for a concern that passionately believes in the success of British workers?
  • Do you want to join thousands of other people and make the switch to The Workers Union?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then we encourage you to become part of our strong, growing organisation.
