If none of these sound right, then email us at [email protected] or call us on 0203 490 7530 to find out whether you can join the IWGB. You can find out more about membership costs here.

When you join, you get

  • Democratic rights: All members elect their workplace reps, branch officers and central union officers.
  • Full legal protection: Members get full legal coverage after the second month of membership (Cases can be brought in the first two months of membership if the member pays a £50 surcharge, £100 for private hire license cases). The legal department will not handle cases that pre-date the member's joining date.
  • Campaigning rights: Want to transform your workplace? Members can organise and lead their own campaigns in their workplace with the support of IWGB officers
  • English classes: Members have the right to free English classes
  • Trade union training: The IWGB regularly runs training sessions on legal rights, organising and other vital skills
