Usdaw looks for membership growth

Shopworkers’ union Usdaw is holding a membership recruitment week next month. The union runs its Membership Week campaigns twice a year — one in January and one in June. 

The union says the weeks have made a significant contribution to Usdaw’s membership growth over the last eight years.

During the week, union officials dedicate all their time to working with reps to run on-site recruitment drives to bring in new members. And both central office and local offices make available additional recruitment materials.
