Growing our union

Unite on the marchUnite is the union for the 21st century, it is Britain's biggest union with 1.42 million members in every type of workplace. Unite is a democratic and campaigning union fighting back for workers, it is taking trade unionism out to millions of unorganised workers, and standing up for equality for all.

This section details how Unite was formed as well as how the union is building membership across the United Kingdom and Ireland.

It outlines the community membership initiative which welcomes those not in employment into the union, and it builds on the strength of organising which is changing the face of the trade union movement. Unite's organising structure and strategy for growth is building a stronger and larger union that is reaching out to millions of unorganised workers to enhance the unity and power of the trade union movement as a whole.
