United Sex Workers (USW) is a branch of strippers and sex workers in the UK, organising with UVW for better working conditions and fighting to change the industry from within.
USW works with strippers, hostesses and sex workers across the UK to improve conditions in clubs through collective negotiation and individual casework. We organise to establish ‘worker’ status, which will enable those working in clubs to claim basic rights at work, such as annual leave, sick pay, a guaranteed basic wage and the right to organise and be represented by a trade union. The sex workers unionisation campaign is organised in partnership with x:talk, a sex workers support project and in conjunction with Decrim Now, the campaign for the full decriminalisation of all sex work.
