10 reasons to join Community

We are a modern trade union which works to protect and improve the interests of our members at work, and beyond. Community is committed to doing all we can to support our members and their loved ones. Our priority is protecting our members’ jobs and livelihoods and supporting the communities where our members live.

Below are 10 reasons why you should join Community today:

Help and support

We have a member support centre with legal advisors dedicated to supporting you with any question you have or any help you may need. The coronavirus has shown just how important it is to have someone on your side for when things get tough. We’re always in your corner, through key changes in your life and especially when issues at work get complicated. If you do face difficulties, we’re always available to come and represent you when you need us.
