Your regional secretary is Paresh Patel.

Welcome to Unite in the East Midlands. We represent workers in all sectors of the region’s highly-varied economy; we also have a vibrant retired members sector and a growing Community membership sector.

The region covers Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and most of Lincolnshire. Each of these counties has its own characteristics and industries and a very diverse population, which we seek to serve through our network of full-time officers, organisers, learning organisers, tutors, staff and lay activists.

We are committed to campaigning and organising on the issues that matter to our members, such as decent jobs, pay, conditions, equalities, pensions, and safe and healthy workplaces. We are also involved in local community issues, organising around issues that affect our members. We are committed to fighting against the injustices that are blighting many of our members.

Our aim is to help and support all our members to build a better life for themselves and their families. We hope to ensure that being a member of the union is a lifetime choice, from the cradle to the grave.
