Political Fund: Trade union members need a political voice. Politicians make decisions that affect the lives of union members at work and at home. Unions need to be able to influence those decisions. For that they have to have a Political Fund. If you don't want to contribute to the MU Political Fund, however, you don't have to - you have the right to opt in or out of paying the levy whenever you want. For further details please contact the Union.

Rules of the MU: The Rules of the Musicians' Union are available from 60-62 Clapham Road, London SW9 0JJ or from the Union's website at theMU.org.
