The Union for Lloyds Banking Group
Who we are
Unite in LBG is Unite the Union's presence within Lloyds Banking Group.
We are here to support you with a number of important issues, including pay, redundancy, sickness, disciplinary, and working hours.
We need to look after ourselves and each other. That can only be done collectively through a union. It is in your interest to join Unite if you are an LBG employee, contractor, or ancilliary staff working on LBG premises.
Unite have spent decades building up knowledge and relationships at LBG. We raise concerns collectively for you to enjoy a better working life, and although we hope you never do need to rely on us individually, we are there for you when you need us.
Unite will never share your information with your employer so all of your interactions with us are completely protected by GDPR, and your membership can remain confidential until you want to tell people.

Outside of Lloyds Banking Group
Unite are involved in a lot of political activity. This does not mean just contributing to certain parties (which is only done if you tick 'yes' on the box at sign-up).
We are also involved in political campaigns that are bigger than party politics. Campaigns such as proper implementation of Universal Credit, access to cash, stopping fire and rehire, feeding children, and equality.
We fight to save the NHS from privatisation, to stop injustice of any form, and to properly reward employees instead of pushing money up the chain.
