Trade Union Partners

The partnerships we have with trade unions stretch back over 2 decades to the early 2000s. We are affiliated and work closely with both the Communication Workers Trade Union and the Public and Commercial Services Trade Union. Our volunteer Board of Directors consists of active trade union members and reps, strengthening our bond between both the credit and trade unions.

To continue our relationship with both unions we regularly attend workplaces, annual conferences, AGMs, regional meetings, and much more.

We are proud to say our staff are members of the Communications Workers Trade Union and are encouraged to get involved with the union as much as possible.
