Community is a new trade union which was created on July 1st 2004 with the goal of becoming the first 21st century trade union. A union committed to not just traditional union activities but to serving our members outside the workplace in the community and at home.
Relying on union skills learnt in the workplace over generations, Community organizes and campaigns for better pay, safer conditions and reasonable hours. With over a hundred years of history, Community has a proven record in the workplace.
However Community is growing. Outside the workplace, we are developing community unionism in partnership with our members, charities and community groups. These partnerships will allow Community to invest in our members and their families and communities.
Community has also taken the steps to provide benefits outside of the workplace. Our members can continue to enjoy our benefits into retirement.
Efficient, adaptable and democratic, Community will redefine trade union service for new generations of workers everywhere.
