Take the Organise 2020 pledge to build a stronger union movement

Take the Organise 2020 pledge to build a stronger union movement

Trade union membership is rising in the UK. After years of cuts and attacks, working people are joining together in greater numbers to press for change at work and changes in our society. 

There are now 6.4 million union members across all parts of the country and all parts of the economy.

But that's still just one in four of the UK workforce. To make the lasting change we need right now, we're going to need to get bigger and more representative still. If this is going to work, we need everyone to commit to getting involved ...

Trade union membership is rising in the UK. After years of cuts and attacks, working people are joining together in greater numbers to press for change at work and changes in our society. 

There are now 6.4 million union members across all parts of the country and all parts of the economy.

But that's still just one in four of the UK workforce. To make the lasting change we need right now, we're going to need to get bigger and more representative still. If this is going to work, we need everyone to commit to getting involved.

The Organise 2020 pledge is an intiative from across Britain's unions. We're getting together to affirm our commitment to some key principles that will help us to build the movement we need to see.

We pledge to: 

  • Increase the number of workers aged under 30 in our movement.
  • Enthuse thousands of activists from all backgrounds to train as new workplace reps.
  • Work co-operatively between unions to bring trade unionism into new and growing sectors.
  • Work jointly to eliminate insecure employment.
  • Modernise how unions operate, organise and communicate for a digital-first era
  • Drive up union membership levels where we already have recognition agreements. 

Can you help deliver the biggest change the union movement has seen this century? The first step is taking the pledge.
