Benefits of the Union

The Unite Housing Workers Branch is run by an active group of members and representatives who themselves work across the housing sector, primarily in housing associations. We put organising at the forefront of our activities, supporting representatives to build an active presence in the workplace.

Please join us and become part of a dynamic branch that is improving the pay, terms and conditions of members in the housing sector.
