Accessibility Statement

The Musicians’ Union is committed to achieving equality in workplaces, in our trade union and across wider society.

Last updated: 07 January 2021

A fundamental objective of the MU is to work towards equality for all by actively opposing prejudice and discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation and socio-economic background/status.

The principles of equality, inclusion and fairness are central to our legitimacy as a Trade Union that campaigns for the fair treatment of musicians and the right for all musicians to be treated with dignity and respect.

We have developed the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) policy which is fully supported by the MU’s Executive Committee (EC) who has given clear direction and leadership that promoting equality, diversity and inclusion is a priority. 

Web accessibility

The Musicians’ Union is committed to providing a website that is usable and accessible by as many people as possible. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards. If you have any queries or are experiencing any issues with the website related to accessibility, you can email us on

Please note that websites can appear differently in different browsers or devices; it may not be possible to accommodate to all situations, but the Musicians' Union will make all reasonable steps for users, in order to comply with the current legislation and best practice.  All content, upon request, can be provided in an alternative format.

Event accessibility

The MU makes every effort to ensure that all events we organise are accessible to everyone who would like to attend. We want to provide equal access to our events for all our members. If you have any access requirements you would like us to be aware of, please contact the event's organiser at least one week ahead of the event to discuss what you need.

If you have booked a ticket for a personal assistant/support worker to be with you during an event, please let us know so we can make sure your seats are allocated together.
