Get us on your side

GMB is the trade union for everyone. Our family is over 600,000 strong, with members from all walks of life doing every type of job imaginable.

Public, private and voluntary sector; full-time, part-time or self-employed – GMB is on your side whatever you’re doing and wherever you’re going. By joining together in our union we’re stronger than we are alone –we are collective, collaborative and democratic.

Our job is simple: protecting, defending and extending your rights in the workplace and beyond.

That means being there to fight your corner if you have a problem, big or small – and working to get you a better deal. Not only will you have our support on workplace issues such as fair pay, protecting your rights and securing a safe working environment; you’ll also have access to a number of GMB benefits such as legal advice, training and education.

Whatever the issue, we have thousands of highly trained staff and expert activists to support you. From securing proper sick pay in workplaces and ensuring wage support, to leading demands for proper protective equipment at the government top table – we make sure our members’ voices are heard locally and nationally.

That’s the power of getting a union on your side. With GMB that’s what you get: a family that stands up for you.

What is a trade union?

A trade union is an organisation made up of employees who join together to preserve and progress their conditions of employment.

By working collectively, and through a trade union, employees of a company can bargain for better pay and terms and conditions for all workers.

A trade union campaigns for better circumstances for its members and also provides individual assitance and services to their members around legal support and workplace advice.

More than six million people in the UK belong to a trade union.
