UCATT is the UK's only trade union dedicated to construction workers. Our already substantial membership is now growing steadily.
UCATT and its members are currently facing exciting and challenging times.
Construction bosses continue to try to exploit workers through bogus self-employment, dubious employment agencies, and the increasing use of umbrella companies.
UCATT fights them every inch of the way to ensure that workers can receive excellent pay and conditions. Direct employment means that workers have basic employment rights such as holidays and sick pay and it will contribute to safer working conditions.
The success in building Heathrow's Terminal 5 on time and on budget using a directly employed workforce is only one of the arguments that should convince the sceptics.
Amongst several other campaigns we also continue to lobby for legal changes so that irresponsible directors can be held to account for the deaths of workers.
You can rest assured that, with your support, we will continue to campaign effectively for your rights and safety. If you are not a member yet join UCATT today so you can benefit from a vast array of services.
Guide: Blacklisting and public procurement
Our new guide seeks to assist UCATT members in lobbying to stop public contracts going to firms that have blacklisted workers and have not made up for it. Download the Blacklisting & Public Procurement Guide now.
