When you join, you get:

  • Democratic rights: All members elect our reps, branch officers and central union officers.
  • Full legal protection: Members get full legal coverage after the second month of membership (Cases can be brought in the first two months of membership if the member pays a £50 surcharge, £100 for private hire license cases). The legal department will not handle cases that pre-date the member’s joining date.
  • Campaigning: Want to win better pay, safety protections, etc? Members can organise and lead their own campaigns with the support of UPHD reps and officers
  • Trade union training: The IWGB regularly runs training sessions on legal rights, organising and other vital skills
