Info’ Re UNIONLINE

UnionLine Legal Services from YOUR GMB Law firm In recent months the UK has been through an unprecedented time and GMB members have, in one way or another experienced difficulties with their work, finances and home life. In light of this, I would personally like to thank you for your continued and valued membership of our great Union. GMB has a history of fighting to ensure health and safety in the workplace is of paramount importance. Through the network of Health and Safety branch officers and GMB organisers, we know that workplace accidents, together with employers neglecting to ensure that workers are fully protected against workplace hazards continue. UnionLine has helped to represent GMB members and their families to receive the appropriate compensation due. Unlike those law firms using fancy TV and Radio advertising, GMB members and their families receive 100% of the award, there are no deductions for fees. This alone is a reason to use your UnionLine for personal injury claims. Some of these firms charge as much as 35% of the value of your claim. So, for example, if your claim was worth £5,000, you could lose up to £1,750 meaning you may end up with just £3,250. There are no deductions in GMB/UnionLine cases and therefore you would retain all of the £5,000 in compensation. Personal InjuryUnionLine, the legal services company created, managed and owned by GMB and CWU unions provides a range of legal services to GMB members and their families. We have dedicated solicitors who are trained to handle accident at work claims as well as claims for accidents that happen outside of the workplace. If you or your family have had an accident in the last three years you might be due compensation by making a personal injury claim with UnionLine. 100% of the compensation awarded and that is because UnionLine’s costs are met by your union membership. UnionLine can deal with claims for:
