Welcome to the website of the North West Region of the Communication Workers Union.

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) is the biggest union for the communications industry in the UK with 200,000 members. It was formed in January 1995 when the National Communications Union and the Union of Communication Workers merged.

The North West Region is organised into 18 branches covering some 27,000 members across Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and the Isle of Man.

These branches form the North West Regional Committee. The Regional Committee has seven sub-committees:

* Education & Learning * Equality * Health & Safety * Political * Retired Members * Women’s * Youth

CWU represents workers in the Post Office/Royal Mail, BT and other telecom businesses, Santander, O2, Capita, Business Post, Virgin Media, Mobile Phone Companies, Call Centres, Cable TV companies and Parcels & Mailing Companies.

Our members' expertise includes engineering, computing, clerical, mechanical, driving, retail, financial, customer service, social media, and manual skills.

As the CWU we aim: -

  • to provide first class collective and individual representation for all CWU members;
  • to achieve security of employment for all members;
  • to offer individual membership services of the highest quality;
  • to promote, by industrial and political means, the success of the industries in which our members work;
  • to promote, organise and facilitate access to adult education to enable members to advance their skills for life;
  • to actively oppose all forms of discrimination;
  • to actively campaign to improve workers rights in the workplace;
  • to further these objectives by campaigning and lobbying throughout the national and international community.
