Welcome to
Capital Branch

In line with the constitution, nominations are now open for Staff Reps and contacts, Union Safety Reps and Union Learning Reps. 

Those nominations must be made in writing to the branch Chair by close of play on Friday 28thFebruary 2022.

Although Branch Officer nominations are open, as we explained when the branch merger took place in November 2021, the list of officers that were published on the branch website were interim at that point. We would be recommending them to you for ratification at the AGM.

However, nominations for any of the officer roles would be permissible by close of play on 28thFebruary 2022.

Nominations for all roles should be sent to the Branch Chair, Kate Walsh, by email to office@cwucapital.org.

Information about the AGM venue, date and time will be circulated in due course.

What the Union does

The Communication Workers Union Is The Biggest Union For The Communications Industry In The UK With Almost 200,000 Members.​

Formed in January 1995 when the Union of Communication Workers joined forces with the National Communications Union, we represent members in postal, telecom, mobile, administrative and financial companies including Royal Mail Group, UK Mail and BT, Telefonica O2, Virgin Media, EE and Santander, as well as outsourcing company Capita. Our members’ expertise includes engineering, computing, clerical, mechanical, driving, retail, financial, call centre and manual skills.

BT workers – your working future is at stake – can we count you in?

BT, EE and Openreach members are facing the biggest threat to their working future. At a time of economic uncertainty and worry, BT Group is ploughing ahead with a radical reorganisation of its business.  They are doing this to protect profit, not their loyal, hardworking members.
