HeartUnions week is a chance to tell the story about why unions are vital for everyone at work and encourage people who aren't yet in a union to join one.
The week focuses on the good work that unions do and raises the profile of unions in their communities.
There’s never been a more important time to belong to a trade union, to secure jobs and keep working premises as safe as possible.
That’s why we’re encouraging all our reps and members to speak to colleagues about Accord and why joining is so important.
We’re offering 3 months’ free membership to anyone who joins Accord during 8 – 14 February.
Due to Covid-19, this year's campaign will be online with a programme of digital content.
Download our HeartUnions resources and share with your colleagues and on social media:

"Over the last year unions have demonstrated their relevance and effectiveness like never before, so let’s use #HeartUnions to say loudly and proudly UNIONS ARE BRILLIANT – JOIN ONE TODAY! " - TUC
