Information on the North Anglia branch of the CWU

CWU - The communications union

We represent around 1700 people in the Northern part of Anglia mainly employed by BT. We also look after the interests of a smaller number of members in other companies.

Nationally the CWU represents around 300,000 people organised in more than 180 branches. The CWU is the largest and fastest growing union in the communications and information technology industries. It represents engineering, clerical, secretarial, computing, retail, telephonist and postal grades in BT, the Post Office, Girobank and over 100 other companies.


As the Union for workers in the UK telecommunications and information services industry the CWU is committed to recruiting, organising and representing the telecoms and information services workforce.

Of the many thousands of telecoms and information services companies operating in the UK, some provide comparatively good levels of pay and employee protection, and some offer no more than the bare legal minimum.

Whatever the level of treatment, there is always room to improve the working lives of telecoms and information services workers by focusing on a whole range of issues from pay and pensions to work life balance and career development opportunities.
