Unite Faithworkers Logo

The Faithworkers' Branch of Unite is open to all employees and office holders of any faith organisation. We campaign on the behalf of faithworkers' and run a large network of union reps who have been trained to support our members through difficult times.

Our main page is on Unite's Web Site

We have a Help Line for Faithworkers on 0333 123 0021 (non-members are welcome to call, but we are limited to the support we can give in these circumstances. You need to be a member for a month before we can give full and legal support providing the issue is not on-going. It is better to join before you have problems)

You can join online or download a membership form (as soon as you get a membership number contact the Branch Secretary with the number so that we can check that you have been assigned to our branch).
