How the Union Works

Getting to know your union

The Musicians' Union is a trade union run for its 30,000 members.

This section details the structure of the organisation as well as giving information about the various ways in which you can get involved in the MU's committees and sections.

People understand what a union is once they’ve needed to access the services of a union, when they’re in trouble. I understood what a union could do for you because my dad was a union rep at the local yard. He was a roofer and a builder. So I understand the basic charter of any union.
