Welcome to the United Independent Union website. The U&I is a new union born of the need for a non-political, non-affiliated trade union. This allows time and resources to be used exclusively in the pursuit of improvement for members on an individual and collective basis.

This site will continue to grow to reflect the needs of our members. Currently under development is a fully-featured members area enabling you to join online, control your U&I account, and access members-only content. In the mean time, you can still download our member application form and post it to our our address or hand the completed form to your UIU representative.

Since conception our membership representation has grown at a rapid rate in the following sectors:

  • Construction
  • Public Services
  • Manufacturing
  • Telecommunications
  • Road Haulage
  • Passenger Services
  • Fisheries
  • Further Education
  • Retail
  • Motoring Services

Our site is constantly being updated with information on employment rights, member benefits, latest news, and our FAQ section continues to grow based on the feedback of our members. If you have a question not covered in the FAQ section why not contact us?
