Unite in Hospitality – who we are and what we do?

Unite the union is the union for hospitality workers in bars, restaurants, cafes, casinos and hotels across the UK and Ireland. We are workplace activists and members supported by a team of Unite Officers and Organisers and we challenge poor employment practises across the sector; fighting for fair tips, decent wages and guaranteed minimum working hours.


Join Unite online today! Unite Hospitality is changing this sector, workplace by workplace. As the cost of living crisis starts to bite, we see our wages shrink and we see profits soaring and the shareholders pocketing them. Having a union in your corner gives you more strength in the fight against employers used to getting their own way.

Unite members have access to experienced Officers and Organisers for advice and support. Unite members have the support of legal teams, equalities experts and political campaigners. Join us and together we can transform this sector. Add your voice to our demands for:

  • A wage we can live on - a real living wage for all ages;
  • Fair tips, shifts and rotas.
  • Union rights and a voice.
  • Safe transport home after late shifts.
  • Better work life balance: rest breaks and guaranteed hours. 
  • Safe, secure workplaces free from bullying and sexual harassment.
