Trade Unions provide many benefits, not just personal benefits such as workplace advice, personal injuries and free legal advice.

  • Make sure your friends and colleagues know about unions
  • Participate in conferences and events
  • Stand up and be counted in our campaigns
  • Tell us your story
  • Support the national trade union movement

Participate in conferences and events

GMB, is your Union, join us, have your say!

Without our members, there wouldn’t be a trade union. It’s our members who raise issues and take forward new policies.

Get involved; take part in discussions and our conferences. Whatever your interest, we will have something for you, from Retired Members section, Women’s section, Equality section, Care section or maybe the NHS.

Join us on our campaigns!

GMB have numerous campaigns, to highlight issues and raise awareness.

If you want to get involved and keep up to date on any campaign that may affect you or your colleagues and friends, contact us and add your details to our mailing list so we can invite you to such events.
