who we are, what we do...
We're your voice at work
Accord is a grown-up union offering professional advice and support to its members. We believe there’s a right way to achieve results - and that's through constructive relationships with employers and other unions. By keeping the lines of communication open, even when we disagree or can’t get what we want, we can find a way to make the situation better.
We negotiate collective agreements that determine your pay, terms and conditions and how you’re treated at work. Our collective voice is strong and our agreements some of the best in the industry.
Although we hope you never run into an issue during your employment, sometimes things do unfortunately crop up from time to time. We’ll be there when you need someone on your side. Accord members benefit from confidential, professional advice on any work-related issue.
We're a Living Wage employer, because we believe that we should live our values, inside and out. We're one of more than seven thousand UK businesses who have signed up to a real Living Wage that meets the needs of our staff.
