Road Transport, Commercial, Warehousing and Logistics
As a worker in the road transport commercial, logistics and retail distribution sector, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with Unite membership; knowing that you will have first rate representation if you suffer a personal injury in the workplace.
As the largest transport union in the UK, we have a long history of representing drivers and non-driving staff, from some of the biggest companies in the industry to smaller local firms, and fully understand the hazards you face on a daily basis.
Sadly accidents are commonplace on the roads, and serious injuries can ultimately result in workers being unable to continue with their employment.
Unite Legal Services offers a wide range of benefits including personal injury cover and employment support.
Unite's DriverCare Scheme provides additional benefits for members in your sector, including cover for assaults and hospitalisation. Members who are part of the DriverCare Scheme can also get compensation for permanent loss of occupational licence due to injury, disability or illness.
We understand the safety concerns of working in logistical and retail distribution and the frequent loading and unloading of heavy equipment and machinery. If your employer fails to give you the necessary training, protection and equipment, and you suffer an injury, Unite Legal Services can help.
