Usdaw’s 48-page Arena Magazine is sent out to every member four times a year (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter issues) to their home address.
It includes reports on how the Union supports its members taking legal cases after accidents; information on health and safety, pensions, employment law, and workers’ rights; interviews with reps and reports on the Union’s campaigns; and offers the chance to win cash prizes and save money with competitions and member offers.
Arena has been voted the TUC’s best trade union magazine three times in the last seven years and was described by judges in 2014 as ‘outstanding in every aspect’.
The spring issue of Arena is out now and reports on the political conference and black members’ weekend workshop. There is also health feature on sleep apnoea and a campaigns’ roundup, alongside all the regular features on legal plus and health and safety. Two brand new pages at the back outline what your membership includes and how to contact the union.
