Branch Secretary :

Do you know about the Unite asbestos register?

Register for all those who believe they have been exposed to asbestos at work


Unite maintains a register for all members who believe they have been exposed to asbestos at work. The database allows us to trace witnesses who may be able to support legal claims for other members who have developed an asbestos related disease.


Join the register by completing the online questionnaire here. You’ll need your union membership number, details of where and when you were exposed to asbestos and details of your asbestos disease diagnosis. If you have already submitted details of your asbestos exposure to Unite, or any predecessor union of Unite, you do not need to complete the form again.


Being included on the register does not mean that your legal case has been activated. Complete a personal injury claim form or call 0800 709 007 to start a claim for compensation.


Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
  • Adverts or information which is posted for commercial gain.
