History with a difference - the Unite History Project needs your help

Unite has launched one of the most exciting and ambitious history projects ever undertaken in Britain and Ireland, and is asking people to be part of it. It looks at the history of Unite and all of the unions which came together to form Britain and Ireland’s biggest union. The Unite History Project will build six volumes of trade union history spanning a century and will be published in collaboration with the Marx Memorial Library. 

History isn't only made in universities or cabinet rooms, it's made by all people, in the workplace, on the streets, and on the picket line. The Unite History Project needs your help to record it, share your stories about the meetings and protest, the battles, the comrades, the solidarity, the wins, the successes and the benefits of being a union member..

  • Conduct an interview: Record and carry out oral history interviews
