General engineering, manufacturing and servicing
In the general engineering, manufacturing and servicing (GEMS) sector, we know that you work in potentially dangerous environments and understand the risks you face.
At Unite Legal Services, we work hard to ensure that members receive skills, training and representation on employment issues to contribute towards fair and safe working conditions, and sustainable growth in your sector.
Unite has affiliations with global manufacturing unions to ensure our influence in your sector has strength and depth. As a manufacturing worker, you can often be exposed to noise, fumes, solvents and toxic fluids that can cause ill-health.
Working in busy engineering workshops and operating heavy machinery brings with it the risk of workplace accidents and injuries.
If your employer fails to provide you with safe and fair working conditions, Unite Legal Services can help. Our solicitors are experts in the GEMS sector and can help you to pursue a claim for compensation if you are mistreated or involved in an accident at work.
Expert legal support at no cost
As a Unite member you will receive expert legal help at no cost. We also guarantee that you will always keep 100% of your compensation – something no high street solicitor, or claims company you see advertising on TV, would offer.
In addition, our legal cover for family members protects your non-working family who suffer an accident on the roads or elsewhere, so you have the peace of mind that they are covered too.
