As a truly independent union that believes in the strength of negotiation, Voice continues to grow and it’s all because of you – our members.  By adding your voice to ours, we are being heard as a union. And we can only get stronger.

We have a strong vision for our future, and we want to involve you in our plans. The more members we have in the workplace – especially your workplace – the more we can do to make a difference for education professionals. To this end, we created Volume – a recruitment incentive scheme – to help you spread awareness of your union.

Raise your Voice and reap the rewards

As well as gaining the support of fellow union members in the workplace, you’ll be reaping the rewards of a tiered incentive scheme available for recruiting any paying member, in the shape of M&S vouchers.

> Recruit 1st member > £5 in M&S vouchers
