Member Benefits

The GMB is one of the largest unions in the UK and because of its size and influence, has considerable strength to negotiate on behalf of its members for better pay and working conditions, higher health and safety standards, better member benefits and importantly - the strengh to support and advise members should they ever find themselves in conflict with employers.

Your GMB membership provides you with lots of additional benefits and offers, over and above GMB’s assistance in your workplace.

On this page you'll find further information about some of the ways you can benefit from being a GMB member.

As a general union, GMB membership is open to all workers and students in both the public and private sectors.

Full time - Grade 1 = £3.00 per week (£13.00 per month)

Part time - Grade 2 = £1.75 per week (£7.59 per month)
