What's HeartUnions week all about?

HeartUnions week is a chance to tell the story about why unions are vital for everyone at work, and encourage people who aren't yet in a union to join.

During the week we want to do two simple things:

1. demonstrate how brilliant unions are by showcasing all that we achieve for working people.

2. encourage as many people as possible who are already union members to ask someone they know to join one too.

So, during the run up to HeartUnions week – and during the week itself – we’ll be sharing stories that show unions’ impact and providing reps and members with resources to help them get more people to join a union.

HeartUnions week 12-18 Feb 2024 - Let’s grow our movement!

Last year we saw huge strikes and massive wins for our movement. But to remain strong we need to keep bringing new people in! This HeartUnions week, people around the country will take to the streets to spread the word about why unions are vital for everyone at work, and encourage others to join a union.

•    Can you run a recruitment stall in your local area/ workplace?

•    Run your event any time during HeartUnions week, 12th - 18th February

•    There will be a map of events on our website here that you can add your event to

We hope unions will run their own HeartUnions campaigns highlighting what they’ve won with and for their members, and encouraging more workers in their respective industries and sectors to join a union.

You can download our bilingual flyers (below) and bilingual logos, to help you promote HeartUnions week. 

We can also provide free bilingual HeartUnions stickers, pens, badges and leaflets. Please contact wtuc@tuc.org to place your order.

Some ideas for HeartUnions week activities in your workplace:

  • Why not make and share a short film about what your union does, to highlight the wins you’ve had?
  • Plan a HeartUnions social media campaign to raise your profile and highlight the good work you do – use the hashtags #HeartUnions and #CaruUndebau in your posts.
  • Set up a stall in your workplace canteen or reception area to talk to your colleagues about the benefits of being in a union.

Over the last year unions have demonstrated their relevance and effectiveness in helping working people like never before.

Join us on HeartUnions week and use #HeartUnions to say loudly and proudly – unions are winning for working people, every worker needs a union.
