Unite

Britain's largest union with over a million members in all types of workplace, and over 100,000 members in the UK health industry.

Unite was formed by a merger of Britain's leading unions, T&G and Amicus, to meet the challenges facing workers in the 21st century. It fights for employees in the workplace, stands up for equality and advances its members’ interests politically. Unite is also active on a global scale, building ever-stronger links with trade unions internationally to confront the challenges of a globalised economy.
