We are a democratic organisation

Conference and committees are formed of democratically elected MU members. Every member can be involved as much or as little as they wish. Members can also submit motions for committees to consider. You can also view the latest ballot results.

As a trade union, we are governed by a set of Rules.

We are also a music industry body

The Union has ‘Sections’,which act as focus groups for musicians working in different areas of the music industry.

These Sections are vital in helping to shape Union policy. Each Section has a democratically elected Committee that meets to discuss issues and, where appropriate, make recommendations to the Executive Committee.

Make the MU, your MU

Whether you want to be part of the governing body of the Union, make a change in your local area or within your music sector, you can do so as an active member of the Musicians' Union.
