Unite - The Union

In 2007, AMICUS and the Transport and General Workers Union merged to form Unite The Union, the biggest union in the UK with 1.5 million members and covering all sectors of the economy in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The Graphical, Paper and Media Sector, took into membership TGWU members employed papermaking and packaging.

In January 2014, further a re-organisation, driven by the economic changes to the printing industry which reflected in the declining number of members coupled with technological change notably in commercial printing, book printing, direct mail and newspapers saw the Unite Information Technology and Communications Sector merge with the GPM Sector to form the GPMITC sector, bringing into the new sector workers employed in the IT industries and workers in the electronic media and in broadcasting notably technical staff at the BBC and ITV.
