HeartUnions week will take place from 11 to 17 February 2019. A week of activity throughout England and Wales that highlights the good work that unions do every day to offer everyone a voice at work.
HeartUnions week is all about building a stronger movement. We want as many of you to get involved as possible.
It’s an opportunity to celebrate the good work unions do in workplaces across the country. Each year we run a week of activities to show how joining a trade union can help you and your workmates. This year we’re fighting to stamp out zero-hours contracts.
Why join a union?
Unions help workers get together, stop people being treated unfairly and get a better deal from their employers.
They’re the voice of Britain at work. Almost six million people are members of a union – from nurses to checkout assistants to lorry drivers to airline pilots .
They are for you when times are tough, even providing free legal advice if you need it. There are lots of discounts and offers for union members too. And every year they help more than 200,000 people get the training and learning opportunities they need to move on in their career.
