Value for Money

I will freeze your membership subscriptions and give you better value for your money

If I am elected as General secretary, I will freeze your membership subscription rate for two years. Under the current leadership of Unite you have faced year-on-year increases, but have you seen more in return for your money? I am determined to give you better value for your hard-earned subscriptions, and I will never put up rates without telling you in advance.

As General Secretary I will introduce Family Membership of Unite to build our movement and improve your value for money. As a Unite member, you get a powerful union’s support and representation when things go wrong at work. Why shouldn’t your partner and children have the same protection? Many of you will have children working for employment agencies, or on zero hours contracts, or in workplaces without union recognition. Let’s bring them into Unite the Union’s family.

We will be stronger for having more members, and your family will be more secure.

I will also re-introduce honorary membership for retired members with long service and reverse the introduction of charges by the current leadership. If you have been a member of our union for 25 years then you deserve free membership for life when you retire – membership of the union you helped to build.

I know many of you are sick and tired of getting cold calls from the union trying to sell you Unite products. I promise to stop this as General Secretary.

I will improve the value of your Unite membership, and grow our union with Family Membership.

  • Freeze your membership subscription rate for two years
