Strong unions, better workplaces - HeartUnions week will take place from 11 to 17 February 2019. A week of activity throughout England and Wales that highlights the good work that unions do every day to offer everyone a voice at work.
A key aim of HeartUnions is to remind people what trade unions can do for them.
After all, unions have done more to improve the lives of working people than any other organisation – and we’re not afraid to say so.
Over the last 150 years, unions have fought for and won sick pay, the eight8-hour day, the weekend, paid holiday and parental leave, the minimum wage, protection from discrimination, equal pay and healthy, safe workplaces.
It’s easy to take these things for granted, but it’s important to remember just how much we all owe to those campaigning unionists who went before us.
