Welcome To The CWU

We are the Trade Union for people in the Communications Industry. If you work in Telecommunications / TV Engineering, IT services / development, in a Contact Centre, Financial Services, Post or Retail we are the specialist union for you!

We also represent people in related industries such as Facility / Building Services, Fleet Mechanics, Civils and Street Works, Supply Chain & Distribution.

South Wales Branch has over 2500 members in over 50 different employers including British Telecom, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, Webhelp and First Source. Whether we have offices onsite or you are the first person to join from your workplace, you will receive the same high quality representation from trained and certified representatives.

Anyone can join a union and receive assistance at work. If you have a discipline, sick or grievance hearing, you have the statutory right to independent Trade Union representation.

There are many additional benefits available for members including free legal advice and services, life – income – car and home insurance, health cover plans, death benefit and our credit union.

Where we have a high density of members we often have collective bargaining rights. We have a successful track record securing higher pay, better safety and improved terms and conditions. We have active campaigns to secure further recognition agreements across the industry. We are currently campaigning for recognition in EE Merthyr.
