Unite is proud to support more than half a million members who work in manufacturing roles across a range of industries; a sector that contributes significantly to the UK economy.
In 2013, we launched our Made in Britain strategy that sets out our recommendations and commitment to ensuring the continued growth of the sector. But problems remain, and members are still finding themselves out of work or subject to unfair agency contracts and low pay.
At Unite Legal Services we know that, working in busy industrial environments, health and safety is a concern. Workers are often at risk of personal injuries such as amputations, slips and falls, crush injuries and contracting industrial diseases.
We work closely with employers and safety representatives to ensure Unite members are provided with the appropriate equipment and training they need to carry out their work safely.
If you are injured at work or are suffering ill-health because of your working environment, Unite Legal Services can help.
Expert legal help for Unite members
As a member of Unite you can be assured that if you are involved in an accident at or away from work, our legal experts will help you claim for compensation.
Do not put your case in the hands of non-specialists who will charge hefty legal fees and take deductions from your damages. Unite Legal Services’ solicitors know the manufacturing sector inside out and guarantee that you will keep 100% of any compensation you are awarded for a personal injury.
Our legal cover also protects your non-working family members who suffer an injury, or accidents on the roads or elsewhere.
