Unite members, both working and retired, benefit from:

Unite Legal Services provides free legal advice and representation to both Unite the Union members and their out-of-work family members if they’re involved in an accident or are injured.
Working in partnership, Thompsons and Unite Legal Services secures hundreds of millions of pounds in compensation each and every year on behalf of injured or mistreated Unite members based all across the UK.
Unlike when instructing high street firms, members using Unite Legal Services have the guarantee that they will deal with an expert and keep 100% of their compensation.
We were responsible for helping Unite to bring a blacklisting case against major UK construction firms to a successful conclusion, securing over £10million in damages for members and their families who had been unlawfully blacklisted by the firms involved.
