We are a grassroots trade union of low-paid, migrant & precarious workers and we fight the bosses for dignity and respect through direct action on the streets and through the courts!
United Voices of the World is a member-led, direct action, anti-racist, campaigning trade union and we exist to support and empower the most vulnerable groups of precarious, low-paid and predominantly BAME and migrant workers in the UK.
The UVW family brings together workers across many sectors including cleaning, security, catering and portering from the typically outsourced facilities/services sector and also hospitality, retail, construction, health care workers and other professions including sex workers, artists, architects, childcare workers, social workers, charity sector workers and legal sector workers including paralegals, solicitors, and barristers.
We fight the bosses through direct action on the streets and through the courts and demand that all members receive at least the London Living Wage, full pay sick pay, dignity, equality and respect.
We will always challenge outsourcing, a practice that creates a two-tiered, racially segregated workforce, pits workers against each other, slashes wages, strips workers of their basic rights and breaks unions.
