Arena puts membership issues at the heart of its four editions. The aim of the magazine is to keep Usdaw members informed of what is happening in the union, its campaigns, the service and offers available to them and where they can go for help.

A diverse range of Usdaw members take centre stage by sharing their stories about legal wins, their passions and hobbies, as well as courageously raising awareness about living and working with serious health conditions and other issues that matter to them.

The first digital issue of Arena was launched in autumn 2023. For the time being, there will be two paper and two digital editions per year.

The spring edition highlights Usdaw’s Freedom from Fear campaign, members share their stories about abuse in workplace, as well as the pitfalls of universal credit, we focus on your holiday rights, as well as showcasing the free benefits of Usdaw membership such as Legal Plus and union learning.
