It's an opportunity to celebrate the good work unions do in workplaces across the country. Each year we run a week of activities to show how joining a trade union can help you and your workmates. This year we’re fighting to stamp out zero-hours contracts.
Last year unions won the right for waiting staff to keep their tips, better pay for workers at Macdonald's, and new rights for pilots and cabin crew in Ryanair and beyond.
But we know we need to do more to win a better deal for workers. And we want to start by stamping out unfair zero-hours contracts .
We have a collection of HeartUnions resources for you to download and use throughout the week. We also have pens, mugs, t-shirts and badges you can purchase from our online shop. Get your HeartUnions material.

There’s strength in numbers. So why not see if your friends and colleagues at work want to join up to a union too, and all do it together.
