The Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) is the largest independent Trade Union in the food sector in the British Isles. First established in 1847, we have over 175 years of experience in representing employees in the food sector, from production at factories through to sales at shops.

Our belief is that employees should feel secure and safe in their workplace and should be paid an equitable wage for the work that they do. We further believe that, by working together, workers have much greater ability to achieve better pay and conditions and to address injustices.

We are here to support our members if they should feel vulnerable; threatened; discriminated against; or generally persecuted in any way. We are also here to assist in obtaining compensation and justice for those who have been mistreated at work, or, indeed, may have been injured as a result of their employer’s negligence.

We are run by our members for our members, with a fully elected governing body who are answerable to our membership.
