At Unite Legal Services, we represent members who work across local government; from police officers and school support staff to waste management operators and highway maintenance workers.
We use our knowledge and influence in your sector to support members with rates of pay, working conditions and pension and training schemes, and campaign to ensure safety at work is the highest priority.
We also know the potential risks and dangers that you come into contact with in your work.

If you suffer an accident or injury at work – from workplace collisions, manual lifting injuries, slips and falls on wet, icy or uneven surfaces or assaults – Unite Legal Services can help.
