UNITED TECH AND ALLIED WORKERS (UTAW)
We are pleased to be able to inform you that since launching towards the end of last year, the new United Tech and Allied Workers (UTAW) National Branch within the CWU – which seeks to represent and fight for workers interests in the expanding tech and digital sector – has just reached its initial membership target of 200 members!
As was highlighted in LTB 461/20, the CWU has for some time been a viable option for workers in the tech industry looking to unionise and already had members in the sector. The formation of the new branch and the recruitment efforts that have followed have sought to expand our existing membership and provide a dedicated space within which to organise and collectivise, to support and empower one another, to fight against exploitative business practices in the industry, and for the improvement of every member’s working conditions.
Please join us in warmly welcoming all new members to the UTAW branch of the CWU, and spread the word within your networks to help us further expand the CWU family and grow what is, without a doubt, the best fighting union in the country.
Attached to this LTB is a one-page info sheet for distribution to branch members. There are also graphics suitable to be shared on social media – these can be downloaded here
Any enquiries relating to the above should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
