Founded in 2005, U&I is a new union born of the need for a non-political, non-affiliated trade union. This allows time and resources to be used exclusively in the pursuit of improvement for members on an individual or collective basis.
U&I has, at its foundation, years of experience working for the trade union movement representing workers in all sectors .This encapsulates representation in the workplace, wage negotiations, grievances, disciplinary hearings and social security, and employment tribunals.
Unlike other unions we are not affiliated with any political parties. Nor will we needlessly spend membership money. All income is used to continually improve and expand the level of service to our members.
The United Independent Union is registered under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolodation) Act 1992. The certificate issued under Section 2 (5) is entered in the list of trade unions "50T, 01.07.2005".
